SummaryThis 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.
