The Film-Philosophy Conference 2017 will be held at Lancaster University, UK, on 4-6 July.

Confirmed keynotes:

We are pleased to welcome D.N. Rodowick (University of Chicago) who will present and discuss his long form video, Plato's Phaedrus. Professor Rodowick is the author most recently of Elegy for Theory and Philosophy's Artful Conversation.

As with last year, we are using a “track” system that will provide a number of broad headings to which a presenter may wish to attach their submission. There is, of course, an Open track if you feel that your paper does not fit within any of the other tracks.

The tracks for 2017 are:

• Open Track
• Speculative Realism and Film
• Film and Ethics
• Philosophy of Video Essays / Essay Films
• Feminist Philosophy and Film
• Eco-philosophy and Film
• Temporality and Film
• Film and the other arts
• Cognitive film-philosophy
• Emotion/Affect and Film
• Cavell and film-philosophy
• Race and Film
• Philosophy and film genres
