Conference: The Film-Philosophy Conference 2011

Film-philosophy continues to grow as an important discipline within the fields of both Film Studies and Philosophy. We invite researchers in this area to submit proposals for the 2011 Film-Philosophy Conference to be held in Liverpool, UK.


We are open to any topics on the subject but would particularly welcome papers in the following areas:

- Film and phenomenology

- The ontology of fiction in film

- Fictionalism and film

- Significant auteurs

- New approaches to film and philosophy

- Considerations of individual films

- The debate between continental and analytic philosophy in relation to film

- Films about philosophy or philosophers

- Animals on film

- Science and film-philosophy

- The methodology of film-philosophy

- Philosophy of film adaptation

- Film-philosophy and computer games

- Cognitivism

- Film style

- Genre

- Media convergence

- Philosophy and film economics

Abstracts should be 200 - 300 words long and papers, including clips - which we strongly encourage - should not exceed 25 minutes. We accept panel submissions with a maximum of three speakers and a length of 90 minutes.

Deadline for proposals: 18 March 2011

Registration now open: 90 GBP / 55 GBP (full-time students/unwaged). Day rates available. Please note that registration does not guarantee acceptance of proposal.
