The Edinburgh International Film Audience Conference is a biannual event which showcases empirical research on the audiences of film and other screen media. Now under the stewardship of the Centre for Communication, Cultural and Media Studies at Queen Margaret University, the EIFAC aims to bring together established and developing researchers, along with voices from the media industries, in order to promote a richer understanding of how audiences engage with the media.
We welcome confirmed keynote speakers Dr Sarah Atkinson, Kings College London (author of Beyond the Screen: Emerging Cinema and Engaging Audiences, Bloomsbury: New York) and Dr Helen Kennedy, University of Brighton (co-author of Games Culture: Computer Games as New Media, McGraw Hill Education) who will co-present on their findings from the Live Cinema Project (http://livecinema.org.uk/).
Conference programme will be made available to registered delegate soon. The conference takes place at Filmhouse, Edinburgh on Thursday 30 March and Friday 31 March.
