Call film/video submissions as papers:

Film can help us think thought

WOBURN SQUARE, LONDON and a cinema in central London (tbc)
Friday March 17th and Saturday March 18th 2006.

"The cinematographic image must have a shock effect on thought, and force 
thought to think itself as much as thinking the whole."
(Gilles Deleuze, 'Cinema 2: The Time-Image', pg 158)

This event is a confluence bringing together moving image makers and 
theorists for two days of screenings, debate and exchange based around 
Deleuze's film philosophy, and his terms: the time-image and the irrational 
interval. Interval (1) took place in Buffalo in November 2005. Interval (2) 
is the conclusive event in the two-part symposia.

The event focuses on praxis and the enactment or embodiment of theory and 
so we are looking for critical thinking conducted via the moving image. 
Interval (2) gives attention to the moving image (in the process of 
production and exhibition) as a site for novel forms of thought and for 
social transformation.

Interval (2) seeks:
- pre-existing or purpose made films, videos and installations presented as 

 >From those filmmakers who think by way of their cinema, we are looking 
for films that show the world upside down, using elements including 
disrupted narrative, non-linear form, the space between memory and 
experience. Films that feel like falling over, rendering time both 
distended and retracted. Films that encourage the thinking of new thoughts, 
that examine sensory-motor interruption and the non-teleological. 
Presentations/screenings can be performative in nature, and cross platform.

Please email 300 word abstracts for film/video papers and/or send 50-100 
word synopses for film/video, plus a dvd or dv tape.

Deadline December 31st 2005
