The Cinematic Canvas is a film blog dedicated to all things art in film. What does that mean? Well, there’s a number of areas to look at: films about art or artists, films made by artists, films featuring artworks, or sometimes even film art. And occasionally, because I don’t like to get too tied down in definitions, I might feature films that just sit under the general ‘arthouse umbrella’ – after all, if I see something amazing I might want to tell you about it, whether it has an art connection or not.
At the moment most of the writing is done by me, David Morrison. I’m a digital content editor by trade, but I have both an academic and commercial background in film. I’ve also written on the subject for a number of sites and publications, including the BFI’s screenonline, Close-Up Film, LOVEFiLM, Total Film, and I’ve contributed a book chapter looking at the aesthetics of art and film. If you’re really keen, you can double its sales and buy it here.
