The SW-TX PCA/ACA annual conference invites you to present a paper in the
area of film theory. Film Theory is a new area at this year’s conference,
and we are looking forward to a wide range of papers that theorize a
specific film or group of films, discuss the evolving relationship of
theory and film studies, or investigate new theories of film. Some
possible topics you might consider:

1. Formal Theory (mise-en-scene, sound, montage, etc.)
2. Authorship Theory
3. Genre Theory
4. Ideology and Film
5. Critical/Cultural Theory and Film
6. Filmmaking as Theory
7. New Theories of Film

And these are just a few of the ways to approach questions of film and
theory. Please feel free to consider others as we hope to create
intriguing and diverse panels at this year’s conference.

Please send your proposal (250 words) to The
deadline for submission is December 1, 2008.
