Call for Presentations: Orphans – A Film Symposium

June 6 to 8, 2019, the Austrian Film Museum in Vienna hosts "Radicals," a new edition of the NYU Orphan Film Symposium.

Call for Presentations

The Austrian Film Museum, longtime home of unconventional cinematic expressions, welcomes a line-up of radical orphan films as a finale to its 2019 spring season. Scholars, archivists, curators, and artists will explore a variety of neglected films related to diverse forms of radical style, practice, and politics. What examples of radical filmmaking are there to be discovered? How have various stripes of radical politics been represented or documented on screen? How are radical new practices and ideas in archiving and preservation challenging traditional approaches?

In addition to unveiling rarities from the Film Museum's own collection, the symposium will include content selected from responses to this Call for Presentations.

We invite one-page proposals for presentations (15 to 45 minutes), especially those that include screening seldom-seen material. New media productions using archival or found footage in a challenging manner can be considered too.
