Call for Papers


Polish Cinema in an International Context 


A 2-day International Conference, 4-5 December 2009, organised by Cornerhouse, Manchester, University of Central Lancashire, Preston and University of Salford


This conference will consider Polish cinema in an international context and feature contributions from both leading Polish, UK and international academics, as well as professionals involved with the production, distribution, archiving and promotion of Polish films. The conference will especially address the question of why, given Polish cinema under communism's wide dissemination and popularity, contemporary Polish cinema has much more difficulty in crossing international borders. The conference will be accompanied by a festival of Polish cinema, hosted by Cornerhouse and public discussions of Polish films. The conference is addressed to the academic community, as well as educators and promoters of Polish films and the public at large.

Prof. Ewa Mazierska, School of Journalism, Media and Communication, University of Central Lancashire
