2. Association for Studies in French Cinema
As previously announced, the Association for Studies in French Cinema has been folded into the British Association for Film, Television and Screen Studies as one of BAFTSS’s fourteen ‘Special Interest Groups’ (SIG). The details of prizes awarded by the journal Studies in French Cinema, as well as the resources previously available on the Association for Studies in French Cinema’s website, such as lists of theses on French/Francophone cinema, and books published on French/Francophone cinema can be found on the BAFTSS site. Can I urge you to join BAFTSS and to let me know if you would like to be a member of the French and Francophone Special Interest Group. This allows you to attend the annual BAFTSS conference and to have your paper proposal considered for the French and Francophone Special Interest Group panel.
