Dear festival colleagues,


for those of you in the vicinity: there will be an interesting event taking place at University of Technology Sydney on April 5-6 that should be of interest to festival researchers and organizers.  Along with a showcase of work by the Kinomatics group on creative industries analyses, there is an afternoon workshop specifically dedicated to film festival research on April 6.


Please come along. It’s free. RSVP by registering via eventbrite(details below).







You are warmly invited to the two-day symposium of our ground-breaking project. Hear from key scholars and industry members on how Kinomatics is transforming the study of culture.
