‘American Independent Cinema: Past, Present, Future’ wants to rethink American cinema through the concept of ‘independence’ and the range of definitions that such a term encompasses. One of the key aims of the conference is to chart the past, present and future modes of film practice in the independent sector and to account for the plurality of forms and guises in which independent filmmaking has manifested in the United States. In this respect we hope the conference will facilitate a much needed re-evaluation of American cinema under the rubric of independence.
Keynote Speakers: Warren Buckland (Oxford Brookes University), Geoff King (Brunel University), Peter Kramer (University of East Anglia), Janet Staiger (University of Texas at Austin), Steve Neale (University of Exeter)
