Book Description

This book reviews the development and performance of the global film industry during the COVID-19 pandemic and examines new trends in film production, distribution and consumption through a global lens.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on the global film industry since the beginning of 2020. There has been significant transformation in terms of film production, distribution and consumption. Hollywood as well as many national cinemas across the globe have suffered the most significant impact at all levels: the interruption of new film productions, shutdowns of movie-theatres in many countries and the delay of new films' release among them. Many movies made for cinemas were forced to move from theatrical release to various streaming platforms and non-traditional production companies continued to grow their market share. This book places the global film industry in a post-Pandemic context. It provides detailed analyses of specific systems of film production, distribution and consumption in national cinemas as well as Hollywood, whilst also engaging with the key theoretical and methodological questions from the film studies literature.
This volume is a critical reference for students and scholars of film studies and general readers who are interested in the new trends and transformation of the global film industry in a post-Pandemic era.
