10th Annual Small Cinemas Conference

The 10th Annual Small Cinemas Conference will take place at ICS-ULisboa in Lisbon, Portugal, between 25 and 27 September 2019. The event is organized by Mariana Liz, Pedro Figueiredo Neto and Inês Ponte (researchers at ICS) and Filipa Rosário (researcher at FLUL).

‘Small Cinemas, Small Spaces’ aims to discuss matters of space in the cinemas of small nations, with regards to representation, the materiality and marketing of film locations, and film production, viewing and exhibition practices in peripheral film cultures. The event also wishes to bring together scholars exploring notions of space and scale in film, by considering what can be the small spaces of cinema, from early cinematic attractions to the recent dissemination of individual screens and broadcasting digital platforms.

The programme is available here, and you can check further information about confirmed keynote speakers.
