DICIS public lecture by Dr Mattias Frey on film criticism in digital times


public-lecture-mattias-frey.pngCIMS announces a new DICIS public lecture on film criticism in digital times. On the 31st of October, 2017, Dr. Mattias Frey (University of Kent, UK) will talk about how digital technologies have had profound effects on both the film and publishing industries, effects that have been experienced by many critics as a form of crisis and a prompt for existential discussion. This talk first outlines the terms of this debate and charts the changes that film criticism has faced in the twenty-first century, before contextualising the current "digital revolution" with historical iterations of perceived crisis among critics. Finally, the presentation will examine examples of good (and bad) practice in contemporary digital film criticism.
