The 24th International Bremen Film Conference aims to explore all the varieties of analytical approaches to “Family Portraits: Cohabitations and Cinema” and to enhance the discussion of how cinema forms and informs our idea of the family and other constellations of cohabitation as a field for experiments, as a place for reflection and as a heterotopia. Furthermore, it will also facilitate the analysis of critical and affirmative audio-visual productions as discourses on the family and its constellations. The conference offers a platform for interdisciplinary exchange on contemporary and historical narratives and representations of families on screen. The conference will combine talks, panel discussions, film screenings and Q&As with artists and film makers. It will take place from May 8 to 11, 2019 at Bremen’s community cinema CITY 46.
Abstracts for papers that address the above topic with an interdisciplinary and film-theoretical approach are welcome. If you wish to participate in the 24th International Bremen Film Conference please submit an abstract (2000 characters) with a short curriculum vitae in German or English by October 20th 2018. A small travel allowance may be granted but funds are limited.
