Are you a historical film buff? Can you offer historical analysis to films that explore the past? Then ActiveHistory.ca is the site for you!
We are looking to expand our review section to historically-based films. Film is a popular medium for conveying historical knowledge. It offers great promise in popularizing history, but it is also contained by many limitations. We would like to explore these promises and pitfalls more fully by hosting critical reviews of films dealing with historical themes.
We are asking anyone interested in contributing a film review to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org – please send us ideas of films you would like to review along with expressions of interest.
Film reviews may range between 700 and 800 words, and should offer serious historical analysis. They can explore fictional or non-fictional works, including, but not limited to, documentaries, television series, ‘golden oldies’, or contemporary movies rooted in a historical context.
We look forward to hearing from you!
