CFP 8th Small Cinemas Conference, Bilbao

Diversity in Glocal Cinemas: Language, Culture, Identity
The 8th Annual International Conference on Small Cinemas
Bilbao and San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain
September 21-23, 2017

Aimed at academics, policymakers and media industry professionals, the 2017 conference will revolve around the phenomenon of glocal cinemas, understood as those cinemas conceived locally and in the local language, but aimed at a global audience.
In the last decades, film theory has embraced concepts such as “globalisation”, “transnational”, “post-national”, “diasporic” and “trans-regional”, and the long-established focus on North American and European cinemas has given way to analyses of lesser-known practices or creative expressions. Two forces operate today in the shifting landscape of world cinemas: globalisation and a reaction to this globalisation via the local and the ethnic. Communities that seek to tell stories from their cultural point of view and in their own language face extraordinary challenges in a market still dominated by Hollywood and other major industries. The organizers of this conference believe that it is through glocal cinemas that the world’s cultural and linguistic diversity can be affirmed, celebrated and/or critically examined.

Ib Bondebjerg, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Margarita Ledo, Santiago University, Galicia, Spain
