European Film Cultures: An International Conference

The study of film as culture and of film cultures has been an expanding area of study in recent years. The aim of this two-day conference is to focus on the most recent developments and discuss different ways of analyzing film in cultural contexts, as well as film as a cultural product, with the aim to debate how different methodologies and perspectives can inspire each other in productive ways.

The European film industry is currently undergoing profound transformations on account of important economic, technological and cultural reasons. The internationalization of markets, the impact of the digital revolution, the repositioning of Europe on the global scene are some of the factors that currently impact on ideas and practices of European cinema.

The centrality of film to European cultures is both reaffirmed today and challenged by these radical changes. Thinking of film as culture and as a cultural product is essential to our understanding of the evolution of European cinemas within both industrial and creative contexts, and to an assessment of their role in and contribution to our societies. The conference is in dialogue with, and aims to contribute to, recent scholarship that focuses on cinema's participation in a network of relationships that connect cultural practices and economic realities, technological innovation and industrial production, policy and creativity.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

Professor Daniel Biltereyst, Centre for Cinema and Media Studies, Ghent University, Belgium. Provisional title: Multiple audiences: Revisiting historical film reception.
Professor Paul McDonald, Chair in Creative Industries, Department of Culture, Film and Media, University of Nottingham, UK
