Philosophy of Film: An Idiosyncratic Annotated Bibliography

This list is idiosyncratic in a variety of ways. It mainly consists of notes on readings that I have used for philosophy and film classes (at both undergraduate and graduate levels) and other presentations. However, it also includes notes on pieces I have considered using but have not done so for a variety of reasons as well as a few others that have interested me. I do not know of any sense in which this list can be considered canonical.
