THE (DE)COLONIAL PEDAGOGICAL POSSIBILITIES OF FILM AND FILM FESTIVALS (A TWO-PART SPECIAL ISSUE)
This two-part Special Issue of Postcolonial Directions in Education (PDE), guest-edited by Sonia Medel and André Elias Mazawi, focuses on The (De)Colonial Pedagogical Possibilities of Film and Film Festivals. The idea of the Special Issue was born out of personal and collective frustrations with limited contemporary scholarship on film and film festivals in terms of their decolonizing practices and modes of representation. Of particular importance to this two-part Special Issue is the complex role films play in representing the relationships between diversity, modernity, and coloniality, from the perspective of practitioners, especially racialized, Indigenous, women and other marginalized-minoritized peoples within the film industry. The first part appeared in PDE 8(2). The second part will appear in PDE 9(1).
