Nominate a Book

CINECITY invites you to contribute to this online exhibition of literary cinema-going.

We are looking for references to cinema-going in literary fiction of all genres. We welcome contributions from across the globe but we politely request all submissions are in English. You can submit as many times as you wish.

Please take a look and explore some of the entries already on the website and if you would like to nominate an extract, please submit your entry on the form opposite. We ask you to include a colour scan or photograph (jpg) of the front cover of the book and the relevant extract that depicts a visit to the cinema (2 pages max please – this will be subject to the UK’s fair usage policy see the British Library’s explanation here).

Please make sure your images are below 2mb in size.

We ask you to also say why you would like to nominate this particular extract (maximum 30 words).

We also welcome longer contributions (maximum 200 words) if you would like to say more about the chosen text and provide some further context.

If you have any questions please email
