Hidden Cinema of the Southwest and Mexico is a one-day symposium with two nights of screenings, February 25-26, 2011, focusing on how and why amateur, industrial, educational, and independent filmmakers have represented the American Southwest and Mexico. We wish to help cultivate a more comprehensive understanding of the Southwest's and Mexico’s cinematic past by showcasing and analyzing the ways the region has been imagined in “hidden” and lesser-known films produced by non-Hollywood and amateur filmmakers during the last century.
The Symposium will be hosted by the Poetry Center and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson. The symposium is a collaborative effort of the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University. University sponsors are: The University of Arizona Department of English, The Center for Creative Photography,The Poetry Center, the Tucson Film Office and The Northern Arizona University School of Communication, the Cinema and Visual Culture Studies program, and Cline Library, Special Collections. Symposium organizers are Janna Jones and Mark Neumann, Northern Arizona University, and Jennifer Jenkins, University of Arizona.
