Following the publication of a major new edited book in Winter 2009, Cinema and Landscape (Intellect, 2009), featuring essays by notable film scholars from around the world, an international conference is to be held on the subject of cinema and landscape.

The conference will be hosted at the University of Sheffield, April 16-18 2010, with the aim of exploring the intersection between Film, Film Culture, Landscape, Place and Geography.

Proposals** (a 150 word abstract) are very welcome for:

- Single Papers (1 person: 20 minutes + 10 minutes questions) or
- Panels (3 persons: 60 minutes + 30 minutes questions)

Topics could include: landscapes of national cinemas; aesthetics, landscape and film; place, identity and the role of film; geo-political film-scapes; film directors and landscapes; new readings in film geography; landscape and film form; travel, journeys and filmic landscapes . . . And more!

Over two dozen excellent papers to date. The intention is to build on current discussions with the aim of producing further research and publications in this field.
