Course descriptionThis course will explore historical and technological developments in relation to the form and content of the moving image, and help you to understand the nature of its circulation through a wide range of locations - exhibition spaces and discursive spaces; geographic, generic, social and virtual spaces.

You will be introduced to studies of exhibition practice and economic, policy-based and industrial frameworks. You will learn how to conceptualise the shifting relations between national and transnational models in relation to different forms of film production and exhibition. An inter-related programme of screenings, research seminars and applied workshops will enable you to deepen and test your understanding of film┐s movements.

The course will cover the political economies of film production, distribution and exhibition: looking at the relations between Hollywood and its others, national cinemas, independent and alternative voices and between global and local modes of exhibition.

The course will generate a map through different spaces and modes of film exhibition - from the multiplex through the film festival to the gallery, through found and virtual spaces.
