BFX 2014 : BFX Conference: DIGITAL CONVERGENCES
Call For Papers
Through an interdisciplinary approach, the BFX conference will seek to revisit theoretical positionings staked out across different fields, with a view to realign the discussion in the light of current technologies.
The realm of moving images has historically been framed by change and flux. It has accommodated a variety of genres of art, cinema, animation and games and has straddled the spaces of the popular and high art. The discussion of the moving image has on occasion occupied separate discursive spaces although with the onset of digital technology a convergence of discourses across disciplines is increasingly more visible.
The conference invites papers that reconsider the arguments that position film, animation and art as aesthetically, structurally and intellectually different.
We are seeking proposals for paper submissions in the form of a short synopsis of not more that 300 words. The submissions will be presented to a panel of selected reviewers.
All Submissions will be anonymised.
