WiderScreen is a Finnish academic journal dealing with multimedial, digital, and audiovisual media culture. It publishes peer-reviewed articles, review articles, overviews, interviews, reviews, essays, columns, reports and media/art works by academic researchers on both the international and Finnish media scene. The journal is recognized as level 1 peer-reviewed publication by the national Publication Forum.

WiderScreen is published from two to three times a year. The issues often have a special theme, but there are also general issues that enable publishing of articles and other work without a given name. The journal is published online, which is the most convenient way to reach Finnish audience interested in the film and media industry. Publication languages are Finnish and English.

WiderScreen is supported by Filmiverkko, a non-profit association promoting film-related online publications, and funded by the Finnish Ministry of Education. WiderScreen also co-operates with Film-O-Holic.com, a popular website concentrating on film reviews and film culture.
