My colleague Vindhya Buthpitiya and I – both at the Department of Anthropology at University College London - will be convening a panel at the first 2019 Royal Anthropological Institute Film Festival Conference 'Expanding the Frame: Ethnographic Film and its Others' to be held in Bristol from the 27th-30th of March. 

The call for papers opened on the 15th of November and closes on the 6th of January 2019. Abstracts can be submitted online at: https://raifilm.org.uk/conference/and the list of panels can be found here: https://raifilm.org.uk/list-of-panels/. Our panel is number 001 and the abstract can be found below.

PANEL 001
We Three: Apparatus, Subject, Society
Convenors: Timothy P.A. Cooper, University College London & Vindhya Buthpitiya, University College London

Departing from the tripartite relationship between apparatus, subject, and society this panel invites reflection on issues of exclusion, consent, cinephobia, cinephilia, censorship, archival absences, informal circulation, piracy, sharing, pre- and post-cinematic entertainments and the efficaciousness of films as categories of knowledge.

Ethnographic film assembles context but less consistently considers local conditions of film-making and film-going. This panel seeks to explore the backstage of ethnographic film: the sociality and politics of film-making, film-screening, and film-going. Much work has been done on the use of film by indigenous communities and the politics of representation, yet Andre Bazin’s deliberation on “What is Film” evidences only one of film’s multiple ontologies. Elsewhere, cinemas are burned or the subject of moral policing, costume dramas ignite nation-wide outrage, in congested cities derelict cinema halls live unlikely afterlives, piracy stands in for film archives, and regional language made-for-DVD films challenge homogeneity and nativism.

Departing from the tripartite relationship between apparatus, subject, and society this panel invites reflection on the exorbitant space that radiates from the various dimensions of film experience and the cinema theatre as a social and solitary space. We hope to discuss issues of exclusion, consent, cinephobia, cinephilia, censorship, archival absences, informal circulation, piracy, sharing, pre- and post-cinematic entertainments and the efficaciousness of films as categories of knowledge. We hope that critical dialogue with notions of film as performance, event and process can shed light on ontological and epistemological issues that may add richness to ethnographic filmmaking, and help to expand the canon to include its “others”.

Kind regards,

Timothy Cooper
