Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


The Society’s annual conference provides a forum for scholars and teachers of film and media studies to present and hear new research; to provide a supportive environment for networking, mentoring, and collaboration among scholars otherwise separated by distance, language, or disciplinary boundaries; and to promote the field of cinema and media studies among its practitioners, to other disciplines, and to the public at large, in part through public recognition of award worthy achievements and other significant milestones within the field.

Each Spring the Society announces the location of the next conference and calls for proposals for open call papers, panels, workshops, and screenings. Members and registered website users can post calls for papers and panel and workshop announcements to the Conference Bulletin Board to solicit presenters. Online submission forms are available in June for paper, panel and workshop abstracts, bios, and bibliographies and film synopses.

For the conference Kreider + O'Leary were invited to present their paper 'Constructing Atmospheres: A Phenomenology of the Film Image and its Relation to Place', which was initially presented at the Architecture and Phenomenology II conference and published in the conference proceedings. Through an in-depth study of Andrei Tarkovsky's theory and practice of the film image, this paper seeks to contextualise and theorise the work done by Kreider + O'Leary in the ir large-scale project Gorchakov's Wish.
