      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:
      ceefms@...

      Plenary Speakers: Dina Iordanova, Professor of Film Studies and
      Provost, St. Leonard’s College, University of St. Andrews, Scotland,
      UK; Janina Falkowska, Professor of Film Studies, University of Western
      Ontario, Canada.

      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.
