New JUMP CUT, MOVIE, CINEMA on Deleuze, L'ATALANTE on acting and cinephile directors, CINEMA COMPAR/ATIVE CINEMA on Manny Farber and MUCH MORE

Happy 2015 from Film Studies For Free! Quite a few major online journal launches of Fall 2014 issues didn't make it into FSFF's end of year round up (which did announce new issues of The Cine Files, Mediascape, [in]Transition, NECSUS, Frames and other great items). So links and contents are gathered below for convenience.

As the brilliant Jump Cut issue 56 has just been published, FSFF wanted to rush that news to you, but will also add further links of note to the foot of the entry in the coming days. So do come back to take a look at those.
