National Screen Productions and Global SVOD Services: The Case of Netflix in the UK and Italy digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
The purpose of this article is to analyse the role played by the category of ‘nationality’ in global SVOD (Subscription video on demand) services by looking at Netflix and its presence in the European context, with a focus on two key audio-visual markets such as the British and Italian ones. We argue that the persistence of the concept of ‘nationality’ on streaming services, albeit arguably marginal, suggests a new understanding of its function within contemporary media conglomerates...

Blockchain technology has gained significant popularity socially in recent years. Bitcoin is its most popular implementation, mainly due to economic interests, though there is much more to blockchain than cryptocurrencies. One could argue that a primary purpose of this technology is to create a fair economic future, though more practically it could also be used to promote and distribute heavy files, such as films...

Pubblicità e rappresentazione femminile: tra vecchi e nuovi stereotipi digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
In our country the conditions for women have radically changed over time thanks to a number of important achievements. However, several discriminatory factors still exist, such as the multiple roles (wife, mother, employee) that women must carry out, or salary gaps between men and women. On top of this we can add the persistent attitude the media takes in defining and assessing the value of a women...

Mapping the Impact of ISIS Propaganda Narratives: Evidences from a Qualitative Analysis in Italy and France digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
The increasingly worsening threat posed by terrorism in Europe has led the media to focus their attention on the issue of violent radicalisation. Although this phenomenon includes different forms of violent extremism – from extreme right-wing movements to catholic movements, eco-terrorists, etc. – today the question of violent radicalisation is mainly related to Jihadism, and ISIS is the most recent and, from the perspective of its media use, intriguing expression...

The Circulation of European Films within Europe digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
While more than a thousand films are made in Europe each year, only around 20 actually circulate in any meaningful way outside their own national market but within Europe. Despite the processes of globalisation and digitisation, we are clearly still some way from a film industry that knows no borders. This paper analyses the sorts of European productions that do travel successfully within Europe, and why. It draws on research undertaken for the MeCETES project (Mediating Cultural Encounters Through European Screens, 2013-2016), and especially the extensive database of films released in Europe between 2005 and 2015 put together by Huw D. Jones...
