Description of CinéMédias publishings coming soon.


This collection of bilingual (French/English) digital books aims to rethink the history of cinema and its methods, by examining the techniques that have accompanied the medium's mutations, from the rise of audiovisual practices in the 19th century to the most recent developments. The scientific texts as well as the numerous written and visual documents, often unpublished, that make up these works are drawn from the thematic paths of the Encyclopédie raisonnée des techniques du cinéma.

Cinema and technology

Amsterdam University Press

Cinema and Technology is an English-language book series edited by Santiago Hidalgo and Katharina Loew published by Amsterdam University Press. This series focuses on the emerging field of the history of film technology and its impact on the way the world is experienced, rationalized and apprehended. The materiality and nature of film devices, their function and use in diverse industrial, educational and social contexts, and the integration of film technologies as an enduring element of consciousness form the basis of the scholarship presented in these books.

« Cinéma et technologie »

Presses de l'Université de Montréal

"Cinema and Technology" is a French-language collection of the Presses de l'Université de Montréal under the direction of Richard BéginAndré Gaudreault and Santiago Hidalgo. The collection focuses on the new field of knowledge that is interested in the broader history of film technologies and the influence of different film techniques on the way we apprehend and perceive the world. The study of cinematic devices, their functions and uses in different contexts (industrial, artistic, pedagogical and social) and their integration into an ecology of audiovisual mediation forms the basis of the research presented in the books of the series.


Nouvelles vues is an open access, bilingual scholarly journal devoted to the practices, theories and history of film in Quebec. Founded at Concordia University by Bruno Cornellier in 2003, Nouvelles vues became a peer-reviewed journal under the editorship of Jean-Pierre Sirois-Trahan (Université Laval). The journal is now published in partnership with the Observatoire du cinéma au Québec, the Laboratoire CinéMédias and the Département d’histoire de l’art et d’études cinématographiques de l’Université de Montréal.

Institutional publications

The work undertaken under the aegis of this research partnership will lead to the creation of a bilingual (English and French) Encyclopaedia of Film Techniques and Technology. Original in its form, this Encyclopaedia will propose thematic parcours around cinematic apparatuses, professions, devices and discourses on technology and techniques, bringing into play a wide variety of media (newspaper articles, drawings and technical documentation, images of devices).
