Lecture Series: Thinking Cinema
In this five-part lecture series internationally renowned scholars will explore new approaches in film philosophy. The fact that this field has been steadily growing over the last decades emphasizes the increasing importance of philosophical interrogations of the ontology, phenomenology and ethics of moving images in our contemporary screen culture.
This lecture series aims to showcase this vital interdisciplinary endeavour with talks by film theorists and philosophers from the Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany.
