European Film Studies – The Key Debates is an academic book series focusing on the mutation and appropriation of key concepts as well as premises and research practices by the key debates in European film studies. 
This series analyses how a number of key problems in this field were tackled and have functioned within the various epistemological traditions in Europe in the past and in the present.

"Since its creation in 2010, the Key Debates series ... has rapidly become a landmark collection of film studies, a field that is both ubiquitous and, paradoxically perhaps, in crisis. ... The Key Debates series is an important contribution to the redefinition and repositioning of the field and, as such, a vital plea for the central position of film studies in the expanded field." — Jan Baetens, Leonaro Reviews

"The Key Debates represents a welcome film studies publication, especially given the specific European connotation. ... a promising contribution to the current theoretical debate among film scholars in Europe and beyond." — Pietro Bianchi, NECSUS European Journal of Media Studies
