Dear festivalists,

Once again the SCMS Film & Media Festivals Scholarly Interest Group (SIG)
will be facilitating the creation of preconstituted panels for SCMS in
Seattle in 2019.

Details are below. Please consider submitting!



Film & Media Festivals SIG – Call for Papers, SCMS 2019 in Seattle (March 13

To participate in a preconstituted panel sponsored by the Film and Media
Festivals SIG, please submit a summary no longer than 500 words, 3-5
bibliographic sources, and an author bio no longer than 150 words.

Please copy and paste your proposal into the body of the email message
(avoid sending attachments!) and include in the subject heading “Film
Festival SCMS paper (or workshop) submission.”

The suggested panel/workshop titles/themes are for your consideration. If
you wish, feel free to suggest another! We are providing this service to
help coordinate the papers of the SIG members so that a maximum number have
the best chance of being selected to participate in the conference; this
has proven to be a very successful tactic.

Suggested panel and workshop themes:


   Festivals and pedagogy


   Festival (studies)’s archives, temporalities, and historiography


   Issues of translation in/at festivals


   Research methods in festival studies


   Festivals & ephemerality


   Roundtable(s): festival directors/curators/programmers


   Expanded cinema and expanded notions of film festivals

How to submit?

Please copy and paste proposal into the body of the email message (and
avoid sending attachments!) and include in the subject heading “Film
Festival SCMS paper (or workshop) submission.”
