In this special issue of the New Review of Film and Television Studies we have brought together a number of papers that explore the identities and discourses of cult cinema and technological change. Cinema itself is a medium which has gone through a series of historically important technological developments, such as the transition to sound cinema, the widescreen ‘revolution’, and the move to digital. Cult cinema also has been marked by an interest in how technologies impact upon the field, though the majority of technology-focused research in the area has tended to reflect on emergent technological developments; historical investigation of technological change has featured less centrally. As a result, in this special issue we include a number of historically focused papers as well as ruminations on more recent developments.
