News of the Open Access publication of an article by a colleague, friend, and fellow blogger, Sergio Dias-Branco, alerted Film Studies For Free to the existence of another excellent online Film and Media Studies periodical: Refractory: a Journal of Entertainment Media.
Refractory, is 'a refereed, peer-reviewed, e-journal that explores the diverging and intersecting aspects of current and past entertainment media.' The journal is published by the Cinema/Screen Studies Program, School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne.
Sergio's excellent work on the Mosaic-Screen is the lead article in Volume 14, 2008: Double Trouble - a brilliant Special Issue of Refractory on Split and Double Screens, edited by Tessa Dwyer & Mehmet Mehmet.
