The Film & Media Festival SIG has extended its deadline to assist in coordinating preconstituted panels for next year's SCMS to August 8.

Submission details below!

Film & Media Festivals SIG – Call for Papers, SCMS 2020 in Denver (April, 1st-5th)

To participate in a preconstituted panel sponsored by the Film and Media Festivals SIG, please submit a summary no longer than 2500 characters, 3-5 bibliographic sources, and an author bio no longer than 500 characters.

Please copy and paste your proposal into the body of the email message (avoid sending attachments!) and include in the subject heading “Film Festival SCMS paper (or workshop) submission.”

The suggested panel/workshop titles/themes are for your consideration. If you wish, feel free to suggest another! We are providing this service to help coordinate the papers of the SIG members so that a maximum number have the best chance of being selected to participate in the conference; this has proven to be a very successful tactic.

Suggested panel and workshop themes:

-          Festivals and pedagogy
-          Festival (studies)’s archives, temporalities, and historiography
-          Issues of translation in/at festivals
-          Research methods in festival studies
-          Festivals & ephemerality
-          Roundtable(s): festival directors/curators/programmers
