CALL FOR PAPERS: Film Love Matters: Romance, Love, and Sexuality in World Cinema

Certainly cinema plays a significant role in determining the way viewers from all over the world construct their own "real" romantic relationships, act in specific romantic and/or sexual situations, and/or emulate behaviors they have watched on the big screen.
