The Screen Industries in East-Central Europe Conference
11–13 November 2011
Brno, Czech Republic
The cinema and television of east-central Europe have tended to be considered in terms of national heritage, ideology, and style; to date, textual analysis has been a preeminent methodology and the region’s so- called new waves privileged objects of study. Conversely, the day-to-day operations of the region’s screen industries have received surprisingly little sustained investigation, with a paucity of attention having been paid to their modes of production, distribution, exhibition, and delivery, and to communities of industry personnel (beyond a narrow canon of celebrated directors, screenwriters, and actors). The Screen Industries in East-Central Europe Conference represents the region’s
first intervention into the field of screen industry studies – a discipline developing rapidly in the United States and Western Europe. Sponsored by the Czech Society of Film Studies and The Visegrad Fund.

Connected Viewing Workshop
18th of November 2011
Department of Cinema Studies
Stockholm University, Sweden
Anuraj Goonetilleke, Head of Digital Strategies, Warner Bros.
Brooke Brodack, YouTube Star, Viral Video Comedian
‹Connected viewing› is an important strategy recently adopted by the moving image industries. Connected viewing aims to change the experience with feature film and television by introducing digital, networked conversation into the process of media consumption. With patterns of media use customized by search and discovery technologies, and social networking sites beginning to figure more prominently as delivery platforms, connected viewing becomes increasingly important to content providers, distribution networks, and viewers alike. This international workshop will bring scholars and industry personnel together to critically address key questions about connected viewing trends as they relate to patterns of viewer engagement, content ownership and new digital distribution technologies.
