European Cinema Today 2010


Transnational, Transcultural, Transmedial: European Cinema Today

An International Graduate Film Studies Conference

University College Cork, Ireland

14th - 15th of May 2010

Keynote Speaker: Professor Tim Bergfelder, University of Southampton


The concept of European cinema has undergone a seismic shift in recent years as scholars attempt to locate it within the context of ever-changing sociological, geographical and political paradigms. Furthermore, the evolution (and arguable democratisation) of the filmic medium through developments in new media and technology, coupled with a residual dissolution of old orders/modes of production, demands that an array of transnational, transcultural and transmedial factors be taken into account in any debate on the topic. Predicated upon the basis that cinematic space in Europe has become “a key territory in which change could be imagined” (Rosalind Galt), this conference seeks to address European cinema as it advances into the second decade of this century.

Organisers: Abigail Keating, Jill Murphy, Aidan Power
