We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the ‘Global Colour and the Moving Image’ conference. The event will explore how colour film has operated in relation to different countries and contexts since the 1950s with papers covering a wide range of national and international perspectives.     

The conference is hosted by the AHRC project ‘The Eastmancolor Revolution and British Cinema, 1955-1985’ between the University of Bristol and University of East Anglia in an attempt to reach a greater understanding of the multiple, comparative complexities of global colour and the moving image.

We are very pleased to welcome our keynote speakers Professor Barbara Flueckiger (University of Zurich) and Professor Ranjani Mazumdar (Jawaharlal Nehru University). Both speakers have contributed extensively to the study of colour through research into technology, aesthetics and screen histories, and their papers address these conference themes.

Please visit the Eastmancolor Revolution website to register before 1st June and for further programme details.

Please note that tickets for the screening of Point Blank on Wednesday 10th July will need to be purchased separately from the Watershed website once available.
