Legacies of French Film Criticism: Crossing Cultures and Perspectives

 

Despite a growing trend towards globalization and an increase in transnational film production, distribution and exhibition, not all audiences make sense of movies in the same manner. When films travel across borders, how are their meanings and reception impacted? Is the meaning of a film dependent on the cultural context in which it is read? This interdisciplinary panel will examine film criticism that falls under a broad “French-language” umbrella in order to map out significant trends as well as new directions in the study of French film criticism and its points of contact with other international cinemas.

This issue shall be published in conjunction with the Institute of Utopian Studies—for the time being, a utopian institution seeking to provide a platform for debate on ideas of radical social change and alternative concepts of living together, which aims to facilitate debate about departures from hegemonic ‘realism’: alternative futures, alternative spaces.
