On the 22th of February, the Faculty of Communication (USC) hosts the first working session of the “eDCINEMA: eDCINEMA: Cara o Espazo Dixital Europeo. O papel das cinematografías pequenas en versión original”. This research, carried out by the Group of Audiovisual Studies under the direction of Margarita Ledo Andión, aims to detect barriers that prevent the consolidation cinema in original version as a mediating agent in diversity policies in order to identificate the key to improve the visibility and accessibility of these cinematographies inside the digital and community space.

At this time, the meeting will be attended by Demetrio Brisset (University of Malaga), Begoña Gutiérrez (University of Salamanca), Francisco Sierra (University of Seville), Francisco Azpillaga (University of Basque Country) and Monica Valderrama (University of Vigo).
