"Comprised of essays from some of the leading scholars and practitioners in the field, this is the first book to investigate 21st-century radical film practices across production, distribution and exhibition at a global level. This book explores global radical film culture in all its geographic, political and aesthetic diversity. It is inspired by the work of the Radical Film Network, an organisation established in 2013 to support the growth and sustainability of politically-engaged film culture around the world. Since then, the RFN has grown rapidly, and now consists of almost two hundred organisations across four continents, from artists' studios and production collectives to archives, distributors and film festivals. With this foundation, the book engages with contemporary radical film cultures in Africa, Asia, China, Europe, the Middle East as well as North and South America, and connects key historical moments and traditions with the present day. For students, researchers and practitioners, this fascinating and wide-ranging book sheds new light on the political potential of the moving image and represents the activists and organisations pushing radical film forward in new and exciting directions.
