Middlesex University's Media Department is hosting the Association for Studies in French Cinema's annual conference on 27 June 2013.
The conference's themes are:
French Films, French Philosophers: Explorations of the relationship between cinema and philosophy, and the ways in which such relationships may manifest in the aesthetics, themes, and/or perspectives in particular French cinemas.
Production Studies in a European Context: Studies of the ways in which French cinema, both historical and contemporary, may be produced. Papers about the contexts of production, distribution, and exhibition; new models of production; and relationship with Hollywood and other national cinemas are welcomed.
Beyond French Cinema as We Know It: Investigations into French cinema that furthers knowledge beyond those concerning accepted canons, auteurs, genres, theories, and ideas.
