CFP: Cine-Excess: An international Conference on Global Cult Film Traditions (1/15/07; 5/3/07-5/5/07)

Organised by the Cult Film Archive at Brunel University and Sci-Fi-London Film Festival

 

Apollo West End Cinema, Lower Regents Street, London, UK.

 

Over the last decade there has been an explosion of critical interest around the global traditions, traits and themes of cult film. Whether defined by horror, kung-fu, sci-fi, sexploitation, blaxploitation, kitsch musical or 'weird world cinema', cult film has moved from the margins to the mainstream of critical respectability.

Biff! Bam!! Crikey!!! Comics as Art, Entertainment and Design

Comics are an important and vital part of popular culture, shaping the early reading experiences of many children, as well as commanding an increasing body of adult readers. They can offer slapstick fun or serious literary themes and have spread into every imaginable genre (comedy, horror, war, adventure, autobiography, documentary and so on). Comics therefore have the potential to be both popular entertainment and provocative art, and have a profound influence on various other media and art-forms, including film, animation, computer games, and television.
