DIY Engagement in Film and Filmmaking, Part 2

Type: Virtual Panel
Theme:
Sponsor Groups: Film-Making and Screening Specialty Group
Organizers: Joseph Palis, Jessica Jacobs, Laurel Smith
Chairs: Laurel Smith

Call for Submissions

This is a call for 3-5 panelists for a virtual panel session (as opposed to a paper presentation) on the engagement and use of film for pedagogy, research and creation of informative and artistic works for geographical knowledge production. Whether for media literacy, moving-image research as visual method or as a teaching companion, this panel hopes to initiate a practical but critical discussion of strategies, opportunities, and challenges to pursuing film as a method and tool of engagement. When geographers use or produce video for teaching or presenting their research, how can we measure and assess its impact - what kind of engagement is taking place with the audience and what tools are available to help us find out.

This panel, which started as a panel session co-convened with Derek Alderman in the 2018 AAG Meeting in New Orleans, aims to explore the connections between the process of making a film but also seeks to find out answers to how we can speak about audience engagement. We wish to explore the interconnections between the production of digital film and video (as well as other formats) and its reception as a form of geographical teaching tool.

If you wish to join, email either one of us at Jessica Jacobs (j.jacobs@qmul.ac.uk), Joseph Palis (jepalis@up.edu.ph), Laurel Smith (laurel@ou.edu) on or before November 18, 2020. Send us a brief description of your work and your PIN#.
