2nd Edinburgh Film Audiences Conference
22nd/23rd March 2007


UPDATE: Due to the late posting of this call for papers we will accept
abstracts after the originally posted dateline of 4th August. We would be
happy to receive abstracts as soon as possible.

Following the success of the 1st Edinburgh Film Audiences conference in
March 2005, we are pleased to announce the 2nd conference in March 2007.
Rather than outlining the current state of theory and research in the area
of film audiences, this call for papers is straightforward.
The aim of the conference is to provide a space for sharing empirical
research into film audiences. Abstracts that focus on contemporary or
historical audiences, the relationship between audiences and policy makers,
film-makers, producers, distributors or exhibitors are all welcome. Work in
progress is as welcome as completed research. Submissions can be made by
anyone involved in audience research be they academically or industry based.
There will also be a bursary for the best student submission (subject to
proof of student status), which can include undergraduates as well as
We are running a special session where work in progress can be presented if
it is too early in the research, just now, to create an abstract. There will
be a maximum of 4 places. An outline of the research topic should be
submitted to the address below and by the same date.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted as virus-free MS
Word or rtf attachments, to Dr Ailsa Hollinshead
(ailsahollinshead_at_blueyonder.co.uk) no later than 4th August 2006. Abstracts
will be reviewed by external referees and all contributors will be notified
by 4th September 2006.
Successful candidates will be expected to book a place at the conference
within one month of being accepted. Copies of the final paper must be with
the conference organisers by 8th January 2007.
The conference will take place at Filmhouse, Lothian Road, Edinburgh. There
is a conference website, accessible through www.edinburghfilmguild.com
