Call For Papers

The AVANCA | CINEMA will hold its 6th edition in July 2015, bringing together researchers whose works focus on cinema and its relations with art, communication and technology.
In the 5th edition we had 205 participants, 197 communications in a proceedings book with 1488 pages published by Edições Cine-Clube de Avanca. The participants came from all around the world to the best edition ever.
