‘… multiple forms of first-person filmmaking…’

CFP: ‘Multivoicedness and European Cinema: Representation, Industry, Politics’ conference (University College Cork, Ireland, 10th – 11th November 2017).

European cinema has evolved from a homogenous and selective object of study, mostly shaped by frameworks of national industry, identity and culture, to a much more diversified field, reflecting the shift to a post-colonial, post-communist, post-national, globalised Europe. In the context of an increasingly diverse but also split society, in which social polarisation is on the increase due to the crisis of the Eurozone and the decline of the welfare states, and in which populism and nationalisms are on the rise, resulting in the strengthening of the Fortress Europe project, this conference aims to turn the spotlight on the less-represented and less-audible voices in European cinema in all its forms: fiction, documentary, mainstream, art house, independent, exploitation, art film. With an inclusive focus encompassing issues of production, distribution and reception, of representation and of form, of dissent and of control, the conference invites contributions that engage from a wide range of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches with the politics of difference and with the representation and/or expression of alternative viewpoints in European films / in films made in Europe.

Keynote Speakers: Professor Ewa Mazierska (University of Central Lancashire) and Professor Chris Wahl (Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf)

Abstracts are invited on topics related to Multivoicedness in European Cinema, including but not limited to:
Multivoicedness in national and transnational European cinemas
Peripheries, borders, and grey areas: falling between the cracks, speaking from the margins
Ethics and/or aesthetics of alternative voices
Audiodescription, subtitling and dubbing of multivoiced films
Cultural and market negotiations: translating cultures, crossing borders
Participation, dissent, resistance: audiences, politics, and public discourse
Alternative European cinemas and the global market
Other voices: niche markets, new forms of consumption
Deterritorialising identities, becoming migrant/minoritarian
Polyglot cinema: speaking from multiple subject positions
Genders and genres: decentering and in-betweenness
Alternative film festivals and other cinemas
Speaking in tongues: the audiences of multivoiced films
Queering European cinema
Nonfiction and commitment: documenting the silenced subject
Speaking for oneself: multiple forms of first-person filmmaking
Transnational, cosmopolitan, global: what European cinema?
A continent in motion: multiple commitments, divided belongings
The “New Europeans” in films / making films
Margins of industrial practices, alternative forms of production, distribution and reception
Speaking parts: person, character, actor, star
