      Small Cinemas--Promotion and Reception

      Timisoara, Romania, 1-3 June 2012

      Organizing Institution: Center for Eastern European Film and Media
      Studies, West University of Timisoara, Romania, contact email:

      Plenary Speakers: Dina Iordanova, Professor of Film Studies and

      The third annual international conference, Small Cinemas, brings
      together scholars and professionals from around the world to discuss
      the regional, national and international reception and promotion of
      small cinemas. We are interested in papers focusing on the status and
      the particularities of small cinemas’ audiences, film criticism, film
      scholarship, governmental support, festival participation, marketing
      strategies, and media outlets. The conference organizers understand
      the notion of “small cinemas” to be fluid and plural, including both
      documentary and fiction, from the cinemas of small nation-states to
      the small “postage stamp” films of mobile devices; from the cinemas of
      ethnic and religious minorities to the productions of minors and
      so-called “minor” authors.

      Presentations are invited on any aspect of the reception and promotion
      of small cinemas. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

      ·         The theorizing of styles, genres, new waves, and auteurship
      of small cinemas
      ·         Journals, scholarly studies, collections, blogs
      ·         Films in schools
      ·         Stars and glamour
      ·         Racial, ethnic, universal informed reception
      ·         Internet, television and print media promotion
      ·         Communal, regional, national, supra-national promotion
      ·         Distribution, transmission, diffusion
      ·         DVD sales and rental
      ·         Dubbing and subtitling
      ·         Co-productions, exports, imports
      ·         Public and private financing
      ·         Globalization and miniaturization
      ·         Festivals
      300-word abstracts and a short bio should be sent to Constantin
      Parvulescu, ceefms@.... Submission deadline: 1 February 2012.
