  • New final chapter, "Digital Technology and the Cinema," pulls together a wealth of recent research exploring the impact of new technology on film production, distribution, and publicity.

  • Revised organization splits the coverage of Latin America, the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East, and Africa into two chapters, making the coverage of contemporary cinema in these regions more manageable.

  • More than 200 new film frames illustrate examples and concepts in the text providing students with more realistic points of reference, ensuring that what readers study on the page actually appears on the screen.
