Competition: Win the entire FilmCraft Series *closed*

This week, CineVue is partnering with Ilex Press to offer one lucky reader the chance to win all six books in the FilmCraft Series. Each entry in the collection offers deep insight into the working practices of the world’s most distinguished professionals, covering their inspiration, collaboration, and work on set. Each professional is interviewed exclusively, discussing their training and their influences and will go into detail on specific scenes in their films to give concrete examples of their craft. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

When we go to the cinema, from the latest arthouse release to the new Hollywood blockbuster, we are witnessing months – sometimes years – of dedication to bring a team’s unique artistic vision to life. The recently published FilmCraft Series from Ilex Press, edited by former Screen International editor Mike Goodridge, celebrates these separate fields in a lavish collection, drawing together the finest creative talent working today.

The greatest strength of the FilmCraft Series is the encouragement it will provide its audience, not only to think about the multitude of arts that go in to making a film, but also to challenge and inspire readers to get involved in the industry. In this sense the texts are tremendously successful. They enthuse and amaze the onlooker, taking pleasure in the art form whilst, at the same time, imparting knowledge direct from the industry.

For a chance to win copies of all six books in the Ilex Press FilmCraft Series, including the not-yet released Producing edition, just answer the following question:

What is the title of the film featured on the cover of FilmCraft’s soon-to-be-released Producing volume?

a) Babette’s Feast
b) Holy Motors
c) Melancholia

To enter, simply fill out the contact form below with your name, email address, subject (‘FilmCraft’), answer and postal address in the comment box provided.*
