The first issue will focus on Portland filmmaker Gus Van Sant. Papers fare sought from a variety of theoretical and critical perspectives on any aspect of Van Sant’s work, including essays on cinematography and style, music, the socio-critical elements of his work, and the like. The incorporation of contemporary critical modes of analysis is encouraged, including (but not limited to) psychoanalytic, structural, post-structural, gender, feminist, queer theory, and pro- and anti-auteurist perspectives.

Essays should run from 5,000 to 9,000 words (lengths are flexible), and should follow theChicago Manual of Style.

While our journal is of an academic nature, we encourage the submission of mainstream, in-depth essays of any kind. Cross-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.
