As the title suggests, "Film Studies bling-bling" is about hidden and well-known treasures, the big and small diamonds of film studies.

In each episode, there is first an interview with a scholar from the discipline of film studies. The interviews are brief and meant as impulses to go deeper into the topics discussed if they meet the listener's interest. In the news section, reports on current calls for papers, scholarly events, or book publications will be made. And at the end of each episode, there is a section called "Dear Diary," in which the podcast gives insight into the research project "The Cinematic Face of Cities" (affiliated with Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf in Germany and Aarhus University in Denmark,2019–2022) and other topics that concern me as a PostDoc.

The podcast is mainly meant for undergraduate students of film studies, PhD students, and PostDocs of film and media studies—but of course, anyone with an interest in film studies is highly welcome to subscribe to the podcast.

I produce one episode per month. The release date is the 20th of each month.
