Call for Papers
Polish Cinema in an International Context ~ 4-5 December 2009
An International Conference, organised by Cornerhouse, Manchester, University of Central Lancashire, Preston and University of Salford
This conference will consider Polish cinema in an international context and feature contributions form both leading Polish, UK and international academics, as well as professionals involved with the production, distribution, archiving and promotion of Polish films. The conference will especially address the question of why, given Polish cinema under communism's wide dissemination and popularity, contemporary Polish cinema has much more difficulty in crossing international borders. The conference will be accompanied by a festival of Polish cinema, hosted by Cornerhouse and public discussions of Polish films. The conference is addressed to the academic community, as well as educators and promoters of Polish films and the public at large.
Please send abstracts of approximately 200 words to Ewa Mazierska by the 1st of September 2009 at: EHMazierska@uclan.ac.uk
