Call For Papers

The Queen's University of Belfast will host
a postgraduate conference to take place on the 15th of December 2006

at Queen's University, Belfast

Experimental Films

When can a film be labelled as experimental? Can a film be labelled as
experimental due to the material conditions under which it is viewed and not
for any of its production characteristics? Is there such a thing as an
experimental approach when we critically watch a film, even a 'classic'?
What kind of viewing strategies do we enact in order to experience and make
sense of experimental films?

Submissions should consist of an abstract (about 350 words), for a piece
with a reading time of around 20 minutes to allow for around the same amount
of time for discussion.
