  2006 Film and History League Conference
  The Documentary Tradition
  AREA: The New Deal
  The New Deal refers to efforts by the FDR administration to confront the Great Depression of the 1930s, but also to other efforts across the political spectrum. The New Deal fostered a fresh approach to documentary filmmaking in order to communicate with the public the New Deal programs and to address many of the social and economic issues of the crucial decade. Under the guidance of Pare Lorentz, documentaries helped develop an appreciation for the visual aesthetics of film--art for society and art to serve the people.  We are inviting submissions on all aspects of New Deal filmmaking, to include anything with a humanitarian, reformist or revolutionary message made during the difficult years of the 1930s, with an emphasis on documentary, docudrama, pseudo-documentary projects, and "problem films."
  The Film and History League conference details can be found at  The conference runs November 8-12, 2006, in the Dolce Conference Center, Dallas, Texas, near the DFW airport.
