This article addresses a question central for a special issue of Multilingua on audiovisual translation (AVT) for which it provides theoretical contextualisation. What is the relationship between the cross- and the intercultural in audiovisual translation? The question underpins fundamental debates in the emergent field of AVT as cross/intercultural mediation, the focus of the volume for which it is a contribution, with subtitling and dubbing the two main interlingual modes considered in its pages from an interdisciplinary perspective embracing translation and audiovisual translation studies, pragmatics and cross-cultural pragmatics and film studies. The article doubles up as the introduction for the special issue, and provides its rationale and contents.
