    Narrative forms and co-production in Arab cinemas

    Norms, constraints, and margins of freedom

    Film industry in the Arab world remains generally underdeveloped. Arab countries still depend on international film support funds, mainly European. This puts Arab producers, scriptwriters and filmmakers in a subaltern position in relation to European producers and funders, whose expectations in terms of content and narrative forms end up strongly impacting the film creation process. On the other hand, margins of freedom and resistance can be created within this system. This conference aims at addressing the complex relation between Arab cinemas and international film support funds.

    The development of cinephilia and the promotion of French and local cinemas

    The contribution of the French Institutes and the Alliances françaises

    The role of movie theatres in the development of cinephilia is a field which has been the subject of a number of researches . Among these venues, a specific section consisting of those of the network of French cultural institutions abroad has not been analysed. Yet they have encouraged and still make a significant contribution to the dissemination and the promotion of cinema. The French cultural action outside France in general has been widely studied, cinema-related action, however, has been neglected. The aim of this colloquium is to remedy this lack and to highlight this contribution to the development of the cinephilia and to the promotion of French and local cinemas, including the encouragement of young creation and the emergence of new talents.

    Mobilisations on Stage. Image of the Real and the Verity of the Image

    Beirut Media Forum 2009

    Cette nouvelle édition du Beirut Media Forum (BMF) se propose d’interroger la diversité notionnelle et la polysémie des usages des images « documentaires ». Nous nous attacherons particulièrement à l’analyse des procédures et des dispositifs de fabrication de ces images ainsi qu’aux rôles et aux fonctions qu’elles recèlent dans des contextes de sensibilisation, d’influence et de mobilisation au Moyen-Orient ou, au-delà, dans le regard qui est porté sur lui.

Il s’intéressera ensuite aux nouveaux lieux de communication politique islamistes – les i-médias – en s’interrogeant sur les formes de mobilisation et de réception qu’ils suscitent aux niveaux local, national et transnational.
