SummaryThis course will continue to 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.

Teaching and reading will be organised around the themes of travel and transmission, with a central concern with questions of circulation and communication. Contemporary shifts in the circulation of film will be traced through the examination of the role of fans, of archives, of broadcasting, and of print and online publishing.

The course will examine different models of curatorship and wider questions of cultural mediation, looking at how to construct potential audiences and how to connect and communicate across a range of media forms and genres.

The course combines the development of professional practice with theoretical approaches to questions of spectatorship, fandom, taste, genre and the archive.

The course will be delivered through weekly two hour seminars. Core teaching will be delivered by the programme directors, but it is anticipated that this will be enhanced by additional presentations and/ or workshops from a range of invited speakers with professional expertise in exhibition, archiving and production.

Learning Outcomes
This course will provide students with a varied and nuanced understanding of the ways film travels across national, generic and historical spaces. Students will be introduced to a range of means through which filmic ideas are communicated to audiences and will gain a knowledge of the institutional and industrial contexts within which film is circulated. Students will be enabled to develop a critical understanding of these frameworks, and to connect and apply this understanding through written work in Mediating Film, and through the project-based activities undertaken within Research and Project Planning and the Final Project.
