DESCRIPTION OF THE CONFERENCE

Call for Papers:
We invite participants to address the following issues related to the following domains:

1. FILM HISTORY (The presence of earlier film techniques and styles in classic and contemporary cinema.)

  • Principles of early cinema, the techniques of the "cinema of attractions" (Tom Gunning) or the techniques of a "Primitive Mode of Representation" that can be seen later in the history of cinema.
  • The heritage of the silent film in the history of cinema (modern and postmodern silent or quasi-silent films).
  • Archaism in the cinema.
  • "The old in the new": e.g. classical cinematic techniques used in computer animation.
  • Renewed styles or genres in cinema.
  • Types of cinematic quotations (classification, functions, history).
  • Stereotypes within the history of cinema.

2. FILM THEORY (Qustions regarding the synchronic structure of the medium.)

  • Complex structures of sound, music, text, image in cinema, TV or digital media.
  • Cases of asynchrony in the use of different media.
  • Synaesthetic experience in classic cinema and in the newer forms of moving pictures.
  • Theoretical problems of non-linear, non-narrative film sequences.
