The Estudos Audiovisuais Research Group has just uploaded to its Vimeo channel the videos that summarize the different sessions of the past International Forum Cinema of Small Nations, Film Literacy and New Audiences. The intentions of the Forum were linking all the variables that could contribute to the building of new audiences. In order to do that, the Forum was attended by experts with different origins and backgrounds; professional, academic and creative. The focus was on small nations as communicative spaces, on cinema in original version and situations of minorization of the language, in addition to treat diversity policies. The videos include a fragment of the intervention of each expert in each one of the sessions.
The Forum is part of the R+D project ‘Towards the European Digital Space. The role of small cinemas in original version” (Ref. CSO2012-35784. Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness) developed by the Audiovisual Studies Research Group in the framework of the National Plan of R+D+i of the Spanish Government and under the direction of Prof. Margarita Ledo Andión.
