A-Z of Favourite Scholarly Film and Moving Image Blogs

Film Studies For Free has recently been infected by two viruses: one nasty but better now, thanks (ach-oo); the other relatively benign, but still totally brain-scrambling in its own way.

The latter is the dratted 'alphabet meme' still doing the film-blogospheric round (issuing from the Blog Cabins site).

As this metablog doesn't write about films (oh no), the forced A-Z of its choice is 'Favourite Scholarly Film/Moving Image Blogs' mostly in the English language, or 'Favourite [anglophone] Film/Moving Image Blogs with a Sizeable Scholarly Component or Impact'.

And, yes (note to FSFF's more litigious readers), all of the usual rules of this exercise are broken below (and more); but this piece of favouriting frenzy is a service to the community: FSFF's formal film blogroll currently has just under 200 entries, so the below choices will form the basis of a new 'Highly Recommended Scholarly Blogs List' to sit near the top of FSFF's right-hand menu.

Comments on this list are most welcome. And do please let FSFF know if it's missing any really important blogs from its various lists. Thank you.

Thanks for the mention Catherine, among the group of so many illustrious people, whom I read religiously, it feels good to mentioned. A positive sign to work harder, grow and learn for our group of cinephiles in the year to come.

Count me in, too, as appreciative of the shoutout. And thanks for assembling this great list of blogs, some of which I have yet to explore!

Great list! One of the best ways to find new film blogs is by "word of mouth," so to speak, and your list has certainly introduced me to a number of great websites I'll be checking out.

Catching up on the internet now--thanks for this. Now that I'm part of the club, I'll have to check out the rest...

Cool! Thanks for the good A-Z list. I look forward to checking out some of these I've not hitherto heard of.
