Please forward to any students / colleagues you feel that it might be of interest to.


Anglo-French cinematic relations since 1930

An International conference hosted by Film Studies, University of Southampton, and supported by the AHRC September 14-16 2007

Despite the close geographical, political and cultural links between France and Britain, the dynamics of Anglo-French cinematic relations remain critically understudied. While numerous Anglophone studies have been written on French film - and indeed Francophone studies on British film - rarely do these works account for the dialectical interplay between the two at the levels of production, distribution, exhibition and reception. In order to redress this balance, this conference is aimed at an examination of the two-way flow of cinematic traffic between France and Britain from 1930 to the present day, filling significant gaps in our knowledge of British and French film and film personnel in transit, and what this reveals about the respective cultures. The conference will hopefully also have implications for the study of Anglo-French relations more generally, and the study of European cinema as a whole, as it moves away from the Hollywood / Europe axis which has dominated studies of cross-cultural traffic, replacing it with an engagement with inter-European exchange. 

The event will run in conjunction with a special exhibition, 'French Cinema in Britain, 1930-present' and a series of screenings, to take place at the Harbour Lights Cinema <http://www.picturehouses.co.uk/cinema_home_date.aspx?venueId=hlsh> , Southampton.
