CTEQ ANNOTATIONS

The Melbourne Cinémathèque is committed to producing new writing on the films featured in its programme helping promote an historically aware & critically literate film culture.

CTEQ Annotations are published as part of the quarterly online film journal Senses of Cinema. Print-outs of the CTEQ Annotations are made available at our screenings. Direct links to relevent Cteq Annotations and Senses of Cinema articles are provided on each film’s page on this site. The key purpose of these annotations is to provide a context for the further appreciation of a specific film by discussing aspects of its production and critical history, by providing a reading of its aesthetic qualities, by analysing its place within a series of related contexts (a particular national cinema, the work of a director, actor, etc.), and so on. They also provide a forum for the sustained discussion and close textual analysis of individual films, while contributing to a substantial database of such writing.

Prior to each edition of Senses of Cinema a list of films screening at the Melbourne Cinémathèque is circulated via the Senses of Cinema and Cinémathèque mailing lists.

To join the mailing list for Cteq Annotations please email cteq@sensesofcinema.com.
