Screen International is a British film magazine covering the international film business. It is published by Media Business Insight, a British B2B media company.

The magazine is primarily aimed at those involved in the global film business. The magazine in its current form was founded in 1975,[1] and its website, Screendaily.com, was added in 2001.

Screen International also produces daily publications at film festivals and markets in Berlin, Germany; Cannes, France; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; the American Film Market in Santa Monica, California; and Hong Kong.

History[edit]

Screen International traces its history back to 1889 when it was founded under the name of Optical Magic Lantern and Photographic Enlarger, only to change its name to Cinematographic Journal at the turn of the 20th century. The name was later changed to Kine Weekly in 1907 and to Today's Cinema sixty five years later in 1972. In 1975, Peter King purchased CinemaTV Today from Sir John Woolf and relaunched the publication as Screen International.

  • 1900: becomes Cinematographic Journal
  • 1907: becomes Kine Weekly
  • 1972: becomes Today’s Cinema and subsequently CinemaTV Today

Many Screen International journalists have gone on to become major industry figures, including Colin Vaines, who ran production for companies such as Miramax and GK Films, and who has produced many award-winning film and television projects.

Oscar Moore Foundation[edit]

A former editor in chief, Oscar Moore—who was also a columnist for The Guardian and a novelist—died of an AIDS-related illness in 1996. The Oscar Moore Foundation was established in 1997 as a charitable foundation administered by Screen International. The foundation's aim is to foster new European screenwriting talent by awarding an annual prize of UK£10,000 to the best first draft screenplay in a genre which changes each year. A foundation patron, Emma Thompson, is an actress and screenwriter who has won an Academy Award for both disciplines.

A special edition of the magazine to highlight up-and-coming talent was established in 2004 in the UK. Since 2010, Stars of Tomorrow has been curated by Fionnuala Halligan, Screen chief film critic.
