Screen International is a multimedia film magazine covering the international film business. It is published by EMAP, a British b2b media company.

The magazine is primarily aimed at those involved in the global movie business. The weekly magazine in its current form was founded in 1976[clarification needed] with its website,, added in 2001.

The company[clarification needed] also produces the market's leading 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.



Screen International can trace its history back to the earliest days of the United Kingdom industry.

  • 1889 — founded as Optical Magic Lantern and Photographic Enlarger
  • 1900 — becomes Cinematographic Journal
  • 1907 — becomes Kine Weekly
  • 1972 — becomes Today’s Cinema
  • 1975 — becomes Screen International[clarification needed]

Since 1975[clarification needed], it has established itself as the voice of the "international industry" — the term used for all film outside the United States domestic market.

The magazine pioneered[citation needed] the daily news magazines that are now a fixture of the major film festivals.

Many Screen International journalists have gone on to become major industry figures, including Colin Vaines, the head of the U.K. division of Miramax Films


The magazine has seen increased competition in the 2000s with the U.S.-based trade titles Variety and The Hollywood Reporter seeking to impose themselves on the international marketplace but it has retained its position as the leading title[citation needed] in circulation and in market share of advertisements at the major markets, such as Cannes and Berlin.


Screen International has offices in:

It has a network of more than forty correspondents around the world. Its conferences, including the annual European Film Finance Summit in Berlin and the UK Film Finance Conference in London, are among the most influential events in the calendar, attracting big audiences and major industry figures.


The magazine's average net circulation per issue, as audited by U.K.'s Audit Bureau of Circulations for the period 1 July 2006 to 30 June 2007, was 7,352. Each week, Screen International is used by more than 34,000 film executives in more than 70 countries, with 37,000 registered users of the online services.


In addition to its print magazine, Screen International maintains a blog site titled Screen Daily which provides a more real-time view of the film industry.[1]


As of February 2011, the editor of Screen International is Mike Goodridge, who is based in the main London office. The Los Angeles office is run by journalist Jeremy Kay, while the Asia bureau chief, based in Hong Kong, is Liz Shackleton. Its official photographer is Andrew Douglas Ross who has photographed at major film festivals across the world for the past fourteen years.[clarification needed]
