About

Eiga Files is the creation of Colleen Laird and Lindsay Nelson, two Japanese cinema scholars who wanted a forum for short essays, reviews, event calendars, and general information about contemporary Japanese cinema. To learn more about us please check out our individual profiles.

Our scope is wide-ranging, but given our particular interests and ongoing research projects we tend to focus on female film directors, independent cinema, and horror films.

Our goal is to inform and provoke discussions about the state of contemporary Japanese cinema in Japan and around the world. We also hope to provide up-to-date information about film festivals and screenings, DVD releases, and cinema-related events inside and outside Japan.

Lindsay is based in Tokyo and can be reached at lnelson@eigo.c.u-tokyo.ac.jp. Colleen is based in Bellingham, Washington and can be reached at Lairdc@wwu.edu.
