Call for Papers Vol. 7 No.1



IJFMA Vol. 7 No.1 - Transversal Entanglement
Guest Editors: Gesa Marten and Jyoti Mistry

For this issue IJFMA Vol. 7 No. 1, we take up the title of the GEECT conference Transversal Entanglement, which took place at the Film University Babelsberg in 3rd – 5th June 2021, to further spin the threads of artistic research in film and weave them together in this journal edition. Transversal is process-oriented, transdisciplinary and multi-perspectival and aims to question and transform existing structures.  Entanglement invites examination of how relations between things effect each other and how relational processes may impact and affect particular artistic outcomes.

For this issue on artistic research, we invite contributions that give consideration to new media forms and technologies, new ways of distribution and reception that are changing the filmic arts and film language. New digital possibilities put the classic cinema space into revised perspectives. Filmic narratives and imageries shape reality in a re-orientated constellation of entangled experiences. Artistic research in the medium of film invites reflection on social, political, economic, scientific and technical transformations.

We invite contributions that are case studies, experiments with and through the medium of film, collaborative projects across disciplines using film and audio-visual media and expansive historical reflections that open towards the entangled relationships between film practices and critical enquiry.

We frame this special issue through the lens of research approaches and methods and the impact of technology is driving artistic research in film forms. Contributors are encouraged to share their experiments with form, content and knowledge from the sciences and the role of technologies which traverse other art forms. Further consideration may be given to the discourses, narratives and imageries in film that expand media forms to build on technological innovations and which impact artistic developments.
