Northern Lights: Film and Media Studies Yearbook is a peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to studies of film and media. The journal is a meeting place for Nordic, European and global perspectives on film and media. The editors stress the importance of interdisciplinary research and welcome contributions on both old and new media. Northern Lights focuses on the interplay between film and media and their cultural and social context. Film and media have emerged as important institutions of modern society at the same time as mobile and interactive media technologies become integrated into the fabric of the wider culture and society. The development of new social networks, changes in political communication and governance, and the changing relationship between art, culture, and commercial markets are important aspect of these new dynamics.
