Mitchell and Kenyon premiere at Cinema & Technology Conference
The Institute for Cultural Research at Lancaster University, UK, will be hosting a major international conference on ‘Cinema and Technology’ on 6-9 April.
Attractions will include keynote addresses by Marie-Luise Angerer, Lisa Cartwright, James Elkins and Thomas Elsaesser, and around eighty papers on subjects ranging from ‘Animation and simulation in popular new media’ through ‘The cinematic life of the gene’ to ‘Virtual acting techniques and interactive cinema’. There will also be a special evening screening of newly-discovered and freshly-restored films made in the early years of the twentieth century by British showmen Mitchell and Kenyon, including a premiere of locally-shot material; an exhibition of Marsha Kinder’s Labyrinth project; an optional day excursion taking in cinema-related venues in the nearby Lake District; two receptions; and a conference dinner at a restaurant on Lancaster’s charming quayside.
