“Why open access? Don’t privatise your research! Be a public intellectual! Contribute to the common good! What’s it all really for if we don’t share the work we love and value in the most open and the most accessible ways possible?” – Prof. Catherine Grant, Birkbeck, University of London. Film Studies For Free and [in]Transition.
