Tom Ue, Editor, World Film Locations: Toronto, Department of English Language & Literature, UCL, Tom Ue is Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Doctoral Fellow and Canadian Centennial Scholar in the Department of English Language and Literature at UCL, where he teaches and researches Shakespeare’s influence on the writing of Henry James, George Gissing, and Oscar Wilde. Ue has edited World Film Locations: Toronto (Intellect Books, 2014) to coincide with the city’s 180th anniversary. He is currently beginning a monograph project on legal theory and the British novel in the nineteenth century.
Rachel Walls, Editor, World Film Locations: Vancouver, Rachel Walls gained her PhD from the University of Nottingham in 2011. Her thesis looked at surveillance and the representation of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside neighbourhood. Rachel now works at Imperial College London in the Postdoc Development Centre.

Explore and reveal the relationship between the city and cinema using a predominately visual approach. The juxtaposition of the images used in combination with insightful essays helps to demonstrate the role that the cities have played in a number of hit films, and encourages readers to frame an understanding of Toronto, Vancouver and the world around us.
