Introducing
Transnational Cinemas 
The main reason for the genesis of a new journal is that there is a community of academics addressing and discussing issues with no natural home for their work. With the creation of this journal we aim both to provide that home andbecome the primary forum for debate for scholars in the developing field of transnational film studies. Historically, film studies has often been comfort-able dealing in fairly narrow terms with boundaries determined by concepts of national cinema – perhaps because a strand within our discipline evolved fromlanguage departments, at least within anglophone education establishments.This approach has generated and continues to generate much fruitful research with authors from area studies backgrounds bringing specialized contex-tual knowledge to the study of cinema; nevertheless, national paradigms areshifting, and new questions are emerging which still necessitate specializedknowledge of national contexts, but now require further issues to be taken intoaccount. Scholars are embracing the challenges of the opening up of borders within academia and within film-making, and are, at the same time, casting an historical eye back to the transnational practises that have often character-ized film-making in both textual and industrial terms. This issue demonstratesthe productive and exciting ways in which key academics in transnational filmstudies are formulating new questions and new responses. We are not going to tackle the thorny issue of definitions here: the ques-tion ‘What is transnational cinema?’ can only lead us into an essentialist trap, whereby complexities are flattened in the search for over-simplified answers
