About

kinokinomozi was set up in April 2011 in order to address a need for academic writings on Central & East European cinema for students and enthusiasts. It aims to not only publish essays on various topics relating to content and cinematopgrahy, but also reviews of films past and present. The name comes from the common Slavic word for cinema, ‘kino’, and its Hungarian counterpart, ‘mozi’.

Most of the work found on this page has been written by myself – My name is Sam Beaton and I am a PhD student in Czech Cinema at the University of Glasgow. Most of my writing evolves around the subject of this blog, in particular the cinema of Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland; but also on various other national cinemas including Russia and Estonia. Indeed, I am interested in multiple aspects of East-Central European culture and history

Outside of the academic sphere I enjoy music, following Aberdeen and Bohemians 1905 in football, and card games.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog and submissions/comments are welcome. Please see the Submissions page for how to get in touch.
