‘Small Cinemas, Small Spaces’ aims to discuss matters of space in the cinemas of small nations, with regards to representation, the materiality and marketing of film locations, and film production, viewing and exhibition practices in peripheral film cultures. The event also wishes to bring together scholars exploring notions of space and scale in film, by considering what can be the small spaces of cinema, from early cinematic attractions to the recent dissemination of individual screens and broadcasting digital platforms.
The event is hybrid. The first day is fully online and open for all. The second day is a blend of an open virtual event and an in-person event by invitation only (check out our programme here). Even though the virtual parts of the event are free and open, participants still need to register.
