2018 Society for Cinema and Media Studies Annual Conference

March 14 - March 18, 2018 | Sheraton Centre Toronto | Toronto, Ontario, Canada


About the Conference

The Society’s annual conference provides a forum for scholars and teachers of film and media studies to present and hear new research; to provide a supportive environment for networking, mentoring, and collaboration among scholars otherwise separated by distance, language, or disciplinary boundaries; and to promote the field of cinema and media studies among its practitioners, to other disciplines, and to the public at large, in part through public recognition of award worthy achievements and other significant milestones within the field.

Each Spring the Society announces the location of the next conference and calls for proposals. Members and registered website users can post calls for papers and panel/workshop/roundtable announcements to the Conference Bulletin Board to solicit presenters. Online submission forms go live June 30 for paper, panel, workshop, roundtables, and seminar proposals.
