/// NEW "Yet Another Media Conference" NEW ///
The EMERGEANDSEE event 2008 in Berlin takes shape and invites you to join!
Berlin will be the start for the 2008 season.
From the 4th to the 6th of February, the last
days before the Berlinale takes off, we will
again fill the Babylon Berlin:Mitte with
innovative films. Next to the EMERGEANDSEE
competition we will hold the "Yet Another Media
Conference" to discuss the future of the moving
image with media theorists, practitioners,
artists and you! There will be ten lectures (not
longer than 30 minutes and then leaving enough
time to discuss) and some trips to museums or
film studios in Berlin. The conference is held by
EMERGEANDSEE and the Institute of Art and Media
of the University of Potsdam as well as the
University of Applied Sciences Potsdam.
You are already disappointed because you think
you cannot afford to come? No problem. We made a
deal with a hostel and can now offer the full
EMERGEANDSEE package. If you don't mind dorms
(not of the bad sort) then we can offer you 4 or
8 days in Berlin. So either you just come to join
EMERGEANDSEE or you include the Berlinale as well.
The price of 91 * for 4 days includes a dorm bed,
breakfast, the EMERGEANDSEE Event with the "Yet
Another Media Conference" and the EMERGEANDSEE
Competition as well as some further cultural
programme all focusing on moving image. Of course
there will be parties like every year. You can
also have a single or double room, that just gets
a bit more expensive. So we hope to meet you
again at our event. Contact
kirsten at emergeandsee.org for any questions or

«Yet Another Media Conference»
What is the future of moving image?
Every media student knows about the ambivalence of their topic. When
telling their friends about university, the next sentence of their
counterpart often is “And what is it exactly you do?”. The term “media”
is getting more and more important in our societies, because everybody
knows that the environment is full of them. But what is media theory and
what can it do in our reality?
The international short film festival EMERGEANDSEE and the Institute of
European Media Studies from the University of Potsdam and the University
of Applied Sciences Potsdam want to close a
gap and together they found «Yet Another Media Conference». In 2008 the
conference focuses on the future of moving image and turns the Kino
babylon berlin:mitte for two days into a bustling campus.
Everyone knows films. Be it on a cinema screen, be it on YouTube. Visual
Art is known by everyone. Media Theory is not, although it is just as
important. Therefore «Yet Another Media Conference» joins international
universities, to discuss, to show, to explain, to learn and to broaden
the horizon. EMERGEANDSEE sees a necessity for an international exchange
between media professors, theorists, philosophers, artists,
practitioners and students. We want to start a discussion in which
students play a major role as they are the people that will form
tomorrow's theory and praxis.
EMERGEANDSEE collects and shows young creative moving images since 2000.
At our short film festivals, we bring the public the best visual ideas
from media and design academies around the world. Filmed or animated,
narrative or artistic – EMERGEANDSEE shows innovative ideas.
For «Yet Another Media Conference» EMERGEANDSEE is searching for media
theorists and practitioners who want to present and discuss their
thoughts on visuality. Anything that concerns the aesthetics, formats,
concepts and genres of moving images is welcome. We would like to create
a connection between work and reflection. Apart from that, the topic of
the conference is kept deliberately broad, in order to create a vivid
forum and to allow many different views. «Yet Another Media Conference»
takes place 4-6 February 2008 in Berlin, alongside our film festival.
The event is held a few days before the Berlinale, because we would like
to offer our guests the opportunity to visit the biggest German film
festival after some days of discussion and reception of innovative and

not limited to
* short narratives

collection of the presented papers. Please send your abstracts as .pdf,
