What kinds of film do geographers make?
What makes a film geographical?
Come and find out at AAG Shorts 2018! Now its second year AAG Shorts runs over Tuesday and Wednesday 11-12 April during the conference, showcasing the best geographical films from around the world. This year we will also be screening making a selection of films available to a wider public with an open screening at the Zeitgeist Multidisciplinary Arts Center In New Orleans on Friday 13 April.

In keeping with AAG 2018 our themes this year are:

Focus on decolonizing geography

Explore the relation between cinema and mapping

Explore creative and critical public engagement
