All panels, conference workshops and the Publisher Forum
will take place at
The University of Potsdam, Campus Griebnitzsee, in Potsdam

Since its founding 25 years ago, the University of Potsdam has excelled in research and teaching and is well positioned both on a national and international scale. Achieving this under consistently difficult economic conditions speaks for the quality and motivation of our professors, research, and administrative staff.

Embedded in Potsdam’s unique cultural landscape, in close proximity to the Prussian palaces and gardens, the still relatively young University of Potsdam has established itself at three locations. The campus Am Neuen Palais, which is in the immediate proximity of the Park of Sanssouci, is home to the Faculty of Arts. In rural Golm, where one of the largest science parks of the region has grown, there are the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Human Sciences.

The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences and the Law Faculty are in Griebnitzsee, not very far from Babelsberg with its historical film studios. The conference takes place in “Haus 6” right on Campus Griebnitzsee.

The second day of the 14th NECS Graduate Workshop
Return of the living-dead media: Media Cultures of Persistence, Resistance and Residue
will take place at the
Filmuniversität Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF in Potsdam

Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF follows an interdisciplinary approach to the artistic, technological, and academic teaching and research on the universal subject of film. Established as Deutsche Hochschule für Filmkunst and known as Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen “Konrad Wolf” (HFF), Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF ranks among the country’s largest and most modern film schools and, in July 2014, became the first German film school to achieve university status.

With its unique educational concept that focuses on both craftsmanship and teamwork, its successful artistic productions, and its innovative research projects, the film university plays a decisive role in shaping the future of moving images. Moreover, the continuing education programs and events of Brandenburg’s only art school allow for the discussion of cultural, social, and political issues.

The film university is an integral part of Babelsberg Media City and closely linked to the metropolis of Berlin. No other place in Germany offers a stronger connection between the past, present, and future of filmmaking.  

At the film university, extensive networks and efficient support structures complement high-level creative, technological, academic, and research expertise. Connections to both small and large enterprises, to established companies as well as to young start-ups provide access to local experts, cover the entire spectrum of film and TV creation and production, and ensure international visibility and appeal.
