Film Studies For Free is thrilled to alert its readers to the publication of a new issue of LOLA, the fantastic online journal edited by Adrian Martin and Girish Shambu.

You can read all about it, and also find the essential links to articles, at this account of the issue at Girish's blog, in which he additionally announced that, henceforth, LOLA would be releasing the contents of each issue in stages.

So, in the coming weeks, you should definitely watch for further texts on Bresson, Cronenberg, Grandrieux, Rotterdam Film Festival, Venice Biennale, and more.

In the meantime, you don't have to wait to read the following fabulous essays by stellar contributors, including a marvellous dossier on the work of Chantal Akerman.

Thank you, Catherine. Sometimes it feels like Internet film culture could keep humming for a hundred years simply on the engine of generosity that is FSFF.
