Viewfinder Magazine


We are looking for students, research students, academics, writers, and practitioners to submit articles and proposals to ViewFinder Magazine.

ViewFinder is the specialist online magazine for Learning On Screen: The British Universities and Colleges Film and Video Council, dedicated to exploring the moving image and education.

Each issue of ViewFinder, from Spring 2019 onwards, will be centred on a theme or topic. The issue will not be entirely set on this theme, so there is still room for pieces that don’t necessarily fit.

ViewFinder is a home for all writers but is particularly committed to discovering new voices in academia and publishing work that has impact outside of the academic community.

The next five issues are themed the following ways:

  • Masculinity
  • Class
  • Migration and Borders
  • Decolonisation
  • Home

Next deadline:

Date:   Submissions before 4th April 2019
Theme:  Masculinity

Exploring representations of gender, masculinity, male and female behaviour on film, television, radio and in education. From old patriarchy in the industry, to new forms of masculinity in the millennium, this issue aims to spotlight one of the more pressing identity issues of today.

Please send proposals and pitches to Kit Caless,

Previous contributors to ViewFinder include:
Laura Mulvey, Charles Barr, Ian Christie, Professor John Ellis, Professor Jo Fox, Roger Luckhurst and Lee Cooke.
