BAFTSS Annual Conference

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


Theme: Labour and Screen Media
This conference focuses on all aspects of the relationship between labour and screen media, historically and today, from representations of labour on screen to the varied ways that labour — viewed as work, craft, skill, creativity, or exploitation — underpins screen media and screen industries. Issues related to labour are increasingly recognised as of central importance to film, television and screen studies. Almost all films and television represent worlds in which various forms of work are necessary, and while they present most obviously the dramatic labour of their actors, and are understood as the artistic works of directors or writers, all productions are dependent on many and various workers, whose labour has until recently often gone uncredited.
