 About the Conference theme -

Papers are invited  to reflect on reality and time by asking for the ontology and essence of film. In this context the double-questions of time and space, motion and matter, life and death, finitude and infinity, multitude and authenticity are proposed to be the centre of the conference themes. The following list of topics intends to be suggestive of the papers that could be a part of the event -

Film and time

Limits of film: Infinity, death, nothing and reality

Speculative realism and film

Accessing the Real through film

Filmmakers of the time-image

Effects of reality: Realism and film

After the conference the authors of some selected papers will be invited together with the keynote speakers to include their paper in a book edited by CFUL titled, "Thinking Reality and Time through Film".

Submission Information:

Each abstract (300 to 400 words) must contain the title of the paper, author(s), affiliation, short notes on CV (max. 150 words) and email. Please also add 4 to 6 keywords. The conference main working language is English, but we admit French or German proposals in exceptional, justified cases.
