First paragraph: More than a decade has passed since this journal highlighted the 'cross-fertilization' that was taking place between the fields of film studies and geography, with a special issue on 'Space/Place/City and Film'. The interest that the editors had identified has continued to flourish and to set the background to diverse research projects. In the British context, one of the most successful and well-disseminated of these projects was 'A city in film: Liverpool's urban landscape and the moving image', based at the University of Liverpool from 2006 to 2010. Edited after the completion of the first stage of that project, Richard Koeck and Les Roberts's The City and the Moving Image brings together scholars from film and architecture backgrounds in a collection of case studies which eschew the usual suspects (such as film noir) for a startlingly varied and original range of material.
