Affective Chronographs is a new film journal/zine (semipro/amateur) published in Winnipeg, Canada. Each biannual issue will present a range of perceptive, astute, and thoughtful film criticism, with an array of pieces academic, analytical, and personal. Affective Chronographs (emotional timepieces / timepieces of emotion) is edited and published by Matthew Montgomery, BA Hons, MA Cultural Studies.

The first issue’s topic/theme covers the relationship between film and the “strong” emotions of disgust and exhilaration. We are currently looking for submissions for our inaugural issue that examines this relationship, though how this is interpreted is up to the writer. Pieces should between 1,000 and 3,000 words, though longer, more substantive pieces will be considered. The deadline for pitches (though not a hard and fast deadline) would be Sunday, July 31st, 2016. Ideally, pieces would be submitted and the editing process begun in late August, early September.

Submissions and pitches can be sent to Matthew at

Also, we are looking for donations, as the journal/zine is a labour of love from a group of starving artists/academics/students. Please consider investing in this zine at:
