Vers l’Espace Numérique Européen. Le rôle des petites cinématographies en V.O.
The need to rename European cinema -identified as national cinema or auteur cinema- can be interpreted as the symptom of an act of resistance that anticipates a new paradigm. From the “cultural exception” (1994) to diversity, which is the cornerstone of the Creative Europe program (2014), cinema in minority languages reinforces the collective commitment to define and occupy the corresponding geopolitical place. To this end, a series of strategies is developed that involve both the institutions, the professional sector and the scientific community. From this perspective, three new variables are developing in film studies:
- Stateless nations and small nations as an analytical category and as a political territory.
- Minority (or minoritized) languages.
- The film as an agent in the construction of ‘imagined communities’.
The symposium is part of the dissemination activities of the project of the National Plan of R + D + i “Towards the European Digital Space. The role of small cinemas in original version”(ref. CSO2012-35784, Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness) that develops the Audiovisual Studies Group of the University of Santiago de Compostela under the direction of Professor Margarita Ledo Andión.
O Centre d’Études sur les Médias, les Technologies et l’Internationalisation of the Université Paris 8 hosted this seminar with the participation of Margarita Ledo Andión. Jacques Guyot, of CEMTI, was in charge of invigorating the debate.
