If you’ve been following along online, you might know that I recently edited a book.
The volume is part of the World Film Locations series published by Intellect Books. The concept grew out of the ‘On Location’ feature from The Big Picture Magazine – also published by Intellect.
The World Film Locations series explores and reveals the relationship between the city and cinema by using a predominantly visual approach perfectly suited to the medium of film. The city continues to play a central role in a multitude of films, helping us to frame our understanding of place and of the world around us. Whether as elaborate directorial love letters or as time specific cultural settings, the city acts as a vital character in helping to tell a story.
It’s a wonderful series to be a part of, and after contributing to a handful of volumes, I took on the task of editing one myself. The book features 38 films set or shot in Glasgow, 7 Spotlight essays on Glasgow as a filmmakers’ city, and an amazing group of contributors.
The official release date is 15 February 2013. You can preorder / order your own copy of World Film Locations: Glasgow here (Amazon | The Book Depository).
Stay tuned for details of the launch event taking place in Glasgow during February as part of Glasgow Film Festival!
