Wish to review a film?
If you are interested in writing a review of a documentary from and/or about Latin America and the Caribbean, released in the past two to three years, please submit a brief proposal to our film review editor Dr. Emiel Martens at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the title of the documentary, its director and producer, the reason why you want to review the film and a short bio (including your experience, university or institution, work or private address, and email address).
Film reviews can be submitted in English and should have a length of 800 to 1000 words. Please include the following elements in your review: a very brief description of the film's nature and structure, a summary of the film's main arguments and/or storyline, and your opinion about the film's main contributions and flaws. The review should be submitted by e-mail. All reviews are screened for their suitability.
There are no specific deadlines. After the review has been accepted and the author has checked the proofs, ERLACS publishes the content online. The film review will then also appear in ERLACS’ two ongoing issues: January-June and July-December. Each review will have its own DOI (digital object identifier) number.
ERLACS also publishes review essays. These essays handle three to six films within the context of one theme, and are from 2000 to 5000 words in length, depending on the number of films included. All review essays are screened for their suitability. If you are interested in writing a film review essay you can also contact our film review editor Dr. Emiel Martens.
