Edinburgh International Film Audiences Conference


Welcome to EIFAC 2011!

EIFAC is a bi-annual conference concerned with film audience research. It aims to provide a space where film audience researchers and others can come together to present completed work and discuss on-going as well as future work.

With eleven months to go, we're pleased to announce the dates for the 4th Edinburgh International Film Audiences Conference. It will be held on 17-18 March 2011 at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh. Please put the dates in your diary!

Our Call for Papers will open in May 2010, with a closing deadline in August 2010. As always, we'll be looking for the best in empirical research into film audiences. We hope you'll be able to share your research with us or come along to the conference to join in the discussion. Booking for the conference will open in September 2010.
The current edition of Participations is a special issue edited by our very own Ailsa Hollinshead and featuring seven papers from the 3rd Edinburgh International Film Audiences Conference, held last March. Please do take a look at Participations Volume 6 Issue 2 for Ailsa's introduction and papers from EIFAC contributors Louise Anderson, Glen McIver, Kathryn Mackenzie et al., Peter Kramer, Karen Boyle, Kerstin Leder and Jane Arthurs.
