A Two-Day International Conference

European Cinemas, Intercultural Meetings: 
Aesthetics, Politics, Industry, History

Conference date: Friday 13th and Saturday 14th November 2015
Venue: University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Organised by: ECREA Film Studies Section
Deadline for abstracts: 4 May 2015

More radically than ever before, European countries – and even the idea of
the continent – are being shaped by international relationships and
pressures, and by meetings and clashes of cultures, identities and
traditions. Simultaneously, its cinemas are undergoing changes in many
respects, in terms of genres and aesthetics as well as of production and
distribution. On the one hand, the notion of transnationalism, that has been
used for some time to capture these changes and move beyond national
frameworks for the study of film, is currently being extended to account for
an increasingly cosmopolitan, global imagination that is reflected in
contemporary European lifestyles, as well as in the aesthetics of
contemporary European cinemas. On the other hand, film production and
distribution often transcend national boundaries, and so do the new digital
platforms for film dissemination and consumption, thus creating new market
configurations as well as new transnational audiences. The growing impact of
mobile social media contributes to forming an increasingly participatory,
networked transnational spectatorship. EU funding for the cinema is at once
adapting to and shaping these trends, as does contemporary EU policy on film
and the media. 

The objective of this conference is to address and discuss the implications
of both novel and past intercultural meetings for European cinemas and their
consequences on its history, identity and evolution through discourses of
aesthetics, politics and industry.

Professor Daniela Berghahn, Royal Holloway, University of London
