Going to be a strong year for new academic publications on indie film (and that’s not even including my new book, ahem, and the collection I’m co-editing with Yannis Tzioumakis and Claire Molloy, both of which are plugged on the home page). Just out is Alisa Perren’s Indie Inc.: Miramax and the Transformation of Hollywood in the 1990s, from University of Texas Press. This promises to be a major contribution to understanding of one of the key players in the indie/Indiewood arena of recent times. Shame it’s currently hardback only and rather pricey (£38 from Amazon, which isn’t as much as some hardbacks but not cheap either). Will report on the content when either the Brunel library gets a copy in stock or when/if I decide I need to fork out for my own before it goes paperback.
