The event is envisioned as an open exchange between scholars and practitioners who will review the contribution that academia has made to the world of film festivals over the past decade. During the afternoon we will consider what areas of research are most meaningful to practitioners, where film festivals are headed and in turn, how film festival scholarship can continue contributing to the field.
