We have extended the deadline to 31st March 2017 to submit a proposal to the conference ‘You Talkin’ to Me?’: Dialogue and Communication in Film, organized by the Interdisciplinary Film and Visual Culture Research (IFVCR) Network.

The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to present new research and developments relating to the comparatively underrepresented areas of dialogue and communication in film.

Tools for film dialogue analysis

Functions of dialogue in film
