Cult Film Conference 2019
Cinema has a long history of looking at the outsider, at those who might be considered different from the norm. The talks will examine very different aspects of that dynamic and, in one way or another, deal with the idea of those at the margins, on the outside looking in. The Cult Film Conference is presented in collaboration with Northumbria University (Newcastle, UK). Lectures will be conducted in English. Free admission on Friday, April 12th from 2pm!
