The magazine is primarily aimed at those involved in the global film business. The magazine in its current form was founded in 1975,[1] and its website,, was added in 2001.

Screen International also produces daily publications at film festivals and markets in Berlin, Germany; Cannes, France; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; the American Film Market in Santa Monica, California; and Hong Kong.


Screen International traces its history back to 1889 when it was founded under the name of Optical Magic Lantern and Photographic Enlarger, only to change its name to Cinematographic Journal at the turn of the 20th century. The name was later changed to Kine Weekly in 1907 and to Today's Cinema sixty five years later in 1972. In 1975, Peter King purchased CinemaTV Today from Sir John Woolf and relaunched the publication as Screen International.
