Long Beach Indie Film, Media and Music Conference

Long Beach Indie Film, Media, and Music Conference
August 31-September 4, 2016 (Submission Deadline May 6, 2016)

The Long Beach Indie International Film, Media, and Music Festival is looking for scholars, filmmakers, archivists, musicians, directors, bloggers, and journalists to bring their intellect, art, and energy to our 2016 Film, Media, and Music Conference.

We invite individual papers and full panels representing any topic (e.g. theory, production, history, criticism, preservation, etc.) related to film, television, music, mass communication, digital media, and/or the entertainment industry broadly defined.

We are also issuing a special call for papers interrogating and/or celebrating the theme: "Gender, Race and the Entertainment Industry."

Bringing together scholars and entertainment industry professionals, the conference occurs in the middle of the five-day Long Beach Indie International Film, Media and Music Festival. (The majority of the paper presentations occur September 2-3, 2016). Official festival venues include the Cinemark at the Pike Theaters, the Long Beach Convention Center, and the Renaissance Hotel Long Beach.

Celebrating global diversity is the mission of Long Beach Indie and we would love to see that expressed in paper submissions. Come spend Labor Day Weekend in beautiful Long Beach, California.
