As a conclusion to the (slightly delayed) Besides the Screen
<http://besidesthescreen.com/> 10th Anniversary programme of events, the
2021 conference builds upon the network’s previous work examining the
continuing transformations of audiovisual practice, to investigate
the reconfigurations of screen industries, cultures, spaces and
places through examining sites of production, infrastructures of
circulation, film festivals, film tourism, and city branding. In short, the
way place/space intersects with the multiple sites of
production, circulation, promotion and consumption surrounding screen
(incl. Film/TV, games, interactive arts) industries and cultures. The
conference will explore the more established scholarship related to these
topics (film festivals, city branding, transnational co-production, film/TV
tourism) as well as expanding the conversation to represent the newly
established or emerging topics (e-sports, virtual concerts).

The conference will be a hybrid (physical/virtual) event hosted by the
School of International Communications at the University
of Nottingham Ningbo China (CN), in partnership with King’s College, London
(UK) and Queen’s University (CA). As ever with BtSN events, the theme of
the conference is deliberately expansive to
bring together interdisciplinary perspectives and we welcome
scholars emerging and established to submit proposals for
papers, video essays, and short films dealing with topics such as:

   - Sites of production, promotion, and consumption
   - Infrastructures of circulation
   - Transnational co-productions
   - Media festivals and theatrical exhibition
   - Film festivals
   - E-sports
   - Virtual events / concerts
   - Film tourism
   - Screen media and city branding
