Film Studies for Free explores fan culture, and so can you!
We love Film Studies for Free, a blog that curates links to openly accessible scholarly film resources. You might notice them in the blogroll on the right-hand side of this page (they're a little below the Music Library... keep looking!)
We wanted to highlight a particularly good recent posting from FSFF about researching fan culture. So much scholarly ink is spilled over movie-making we often forget how integral fan and media reactions can be in the film world too. FSFF's index is quite comprehensive, focusing primarily on print film publications but also research methods for studying fan culture.
This isn't exactly easy reading, but it's a valuable guide for anyone interested in researched film fan and media culture. Maybe you didn't even know that was something you could research until now!
