Filmicon: Journal of Greek Film Studies is a bilingual (English and Greek), peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal edited primarily by independent scholars and published by ‘Eurasia Publications’, Athens. It aims:

  1. To provide a forum for exploring the diverse aspects of Greek film, television and audiovisual culture from a wide range of approaches and methodological standpoints.
  2. To situate the Greek experience in broader international and transnational contexts with particular emphasis on diasporic, European, Mediterranean and Balkan perspectives.
  3. To encourage intertextual, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary readings.

The emphasis on the Greek case does not mean that Filmicon is not concerned with other national cinemas or issues related to Film and Media Studies that move beyond national frames. So Filmicon is keen to publish material dealing with theory, history, criticism and aesthetics of film, television and media in general.


Filmicon adheres to a double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of both the reviewer and author are always concealed from both parties.


Filmicon warmly welcomes proposals for guest-edited Special Issues on relevant topics provided that they follow the peer review policy of the journal. To submit proposals for guest-edited Special Issues, please check here.


Filmicon invites a variety of original contributions in either English or Greek (or in both languages): articles, book reviews, film reviews, translations, bibliographies, filmographies, interviews, conference and film festival reports that have not previously appeared in any other published form (print or online). Please note that manuscripts that are under review at any other journal or collective volume cannot be considered. Manuscripts can be submitted at any time. For Special Issues, however, specific deadlines will be announced. To submit a manuscript for consideration, please check here.


Filmicon has no fixed publication dates. Whilst maintaining the high standards of print journals, it adopts a flexible publication schedule depending on the quantity and quality of submissions received. The expectation is, at least, of one issue per calendar year.


Filmicon provides direct open access to its content supporting a free and wider exchange of information and knowledge.


Copyright for all material published in Filmicon is retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. Authors may use their work elsewhere after publication without prior permission from Filmicon, provided that acknowledgment is given to the Journal as the original source of publication.
