University of South Carolina
Film Symposium

Orphans IV *

On Location: Place & Region in Forgotten Films
March 25-27, 2004

The University of South Carolina will host its fourth symposium on the
preservation, study, and use of orphan films. Again the USC Film Studies
Program and the Film Library bring together an eclectic mix of moving
image archivists, cinema scholars, preservation experts, curators, and
filmmakers who work with orphaned material. Selected speakers will lead
three days of presentations, screenings, and discussion. *

We invite presentations on the role of orphan films in recording,
representing, constructing, and imagining the world. What do regional
and local cinemas tell us about the places where they were made? What
creative geographies are formed from the likes of amateur films,
newsreels, travelogues, kinescopes, ethnographic, educational and
industrial documentaries, silent movies, science films, indie features
and other neglected motion pictures? How do local and regional, national
and global issues affect the preservation of and access to moving image
materials? How are ideas about particular spaces and landscapes shaped
by forgotten films? From the home of home movies to the world of the
world-wide web, Orphans 'O4 will re-examine how neglected media
artifacts create a sense of place.
