Contemporary Greek Film Cultures 2013 is a 2-day cross-institutional, international conference for the study of Contemporary Greek Cinema and more broadly Greek Film Cultures internationally. The conference aims to bring together academics, critics and practitioners of Greek Cinema, and create debates and discussions on various aspects of Greek film; additionally the conference aims to actively address gaps in the current scholarship in Greek Film Studies, and help promote a more concerted study and theorisation of Contemporary Greek Cinema, reflecting on the multi-faceted contexts of production, distribution and study of Greek Cinema.
