In July 2019, The Film Department of Universitas Multimedia Nusantara, partnering with Universitas Pelita Harapan, University of Nottingham-Malaysia, University of Technology Sydney, University of Canberra will launch its inaugural edition International Moving Image Cultures Conference (IMOVICCON 2019).
In its inaugural edition, the foregrounded theme will revolve around, but not limited to: mobile screen cultures. This theme is considered central in our age in respect to the moving image consumptions and productions that have moved beyond the traditional exhibition and consumption outlets such as big screen and televisions. Nowadays, moving images are alive in our smallest and most mobile gadgets and allow us to access, share or deconstruct it real time from everywhere.
IMOVICCON will provide a space for us to exchange our explorations on various aspects of moving images in the context of mobile screens including its narratives, technologies, audience engagements, transmediality, histories, productions, literacy and experimentations.
