*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

CineExcess - An International Conference on Global Cult Film Traditions

In conjunction with SCI-FI-LONDON and The Cult Film Archive at Brunel
University

3-5 May 2007, Apollo West End, London, UK


Over the last decade there has been an explosion of critical interest
around the global traditions, traits and themes of cult film. Whether
defined by horror, kung-fu, sci-fi, sexploitation, blaxploitation, kitsch
musical or 'weird world cinema', cult film has moved from the margins to
the mainstream of critical respectability.

The cult film has generated several significant academic collections,
bookseries and monographs as well as international audience studies
projects
and dedicated research organisations devoted to the study of the world's
unruliest images.

To celebrate the launch of the world's first MA programme in Cult Film and
TV, the Cult Film Archive at Brunel University and SCI-FI-LONDON (the
London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film) will
be hosting an international conference dissecting and re-evaluating some
of the biggest trends, icons, auteurs and periods of global cult film
production. Presented across a number of key strands, the conference will
supplement discussion papers and plenary sessions with screenings and
talks by leading cult filmmakers.

Proposals are welcomed on, but not limited to, the following topics and
areas:

- Cult Auteurs, Cult Mavericks:  New readings of leading cult filmmakers -
Cult Icons: New readings of leading cult icons and performers
- Taking Trash Seriously: Conceptualising cult through film/cultural/media
theory
- Cult across Categories: Overlaps between cult film and other
visual/electronic/web based media
- Cult consumers: New readings in fandom and cult audience research -
Distributing Excess: Distribution and exhibition strategies in cult cinema
- Exploitation: No Place for a Woman? Case-Studies of female cult/icons
and auteurs
- Cult Contexts: International reception studies of cult and marginal film
trends
- Transnational Cult Perspectives - Issues of national identity, taste and
region
- Underground American Auteurs: From 'classic' to contemporary cult -
Queer Cults - Sexual identities in marginal and mainstream cult cinema -
Cruel Britannia: The lost continent of British trash cinema
- Porno Chic, Porno Schlock: Traditions of the cult erotic image
- Fear Today, Horror Tomorrow: Cult remakes and contemporary fears -
Continental Cults: New Readings of European trash cinema
- Beyond Asia Extreme: Rethinking Cult Asian Cinema
- Art-House or Atrocity: Style and aesthetics in the cult film
- Cult Case-Studies: Production and institutional studies of cult studios

Please send a 300 word abstract and a short (one page) C.V. by 15th
January 2007, to:

Xavier Mendik
Director of the Cult Film Archive/Convenor of the MA in Cult Film and TV
