Comprising the publication of in-house editions and the commissioning of new critical texts dedicated to films appearing in the cinema’s programme, this project aims to promote critical thinking and writing about film and the moving image.
Every year, Batalha assembles a group of guest authors, invited for their diverse and complementary relationships with cinema, with the view to producing new critical and essayistic texts dedicated to films within Batalha's programme. Made available in the programme notes for each screening — in a collectable format — these texts can also be read online.
Bios for each of the 11 guest authors
Featuring literary and critical contributions from guest authors, our publications are either to themes covered by our film programmes, or dedicated to the practice of contemporary artists and filmmakers.
