The Oxford Handbook of Film and Media Studies is a major new reference work that provides the best single-volume source of original scholarship on the intersection of film and media studies. Comprised of twenty chapters written by experts in their fields, this work presents an authoritative, in-depth, and up-to-date assessment of film and media in the early twenty-first century in the U.S. and abroad.

There are contributions by industry professionals, presenting an inside look at film and media today. The Handbook deals with issues as wide ranging and pertinent as copyright, globalization, television programming, video game genres, the ideologies of media, and movie going in India.
