Bright Lights Film Journal began life as a print publication in 1974, published and edited by Gary Morris. In 1995, the magazine went online exclusively as brightlightsfilm.com. In April 2014, it retired its quarterly issue publication model in favor of a more contemporary approach and now continually pushes content live.
Metrograph's selection of Bright Lights includes three issues from 1975 and 1976, all used but in like new condition. For inquiries regarding specific issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
