X GECA International Congress: Queer Cinema in the World
September 27, 2022

This congress examines how queer cinema has changed in the world over time, how it continues to evolve in the present and what role it could play in the future when it comes to building imaginaries, proposing plural images and challenging stereotypes, narratives and aesthetics. that broadcast other types of cinematography. In this sense, we want to offer possible answers to the questions posed by a term that is difficult to translate in the Spanish-speaking context, such as “queer cinema”: are we talking about films directed by LGBTIQ+ directors? Are we referring to films that place the representation of lesbian, gay, bi, intersex or trans identities at the center? Or, are we talking about films whose audiovisual language poses challenges to the aesthetics and visuality of Hollywood cinema?

It is a congress in hybrid mode (online and face-to-face) that will take place on October 5, 6 and 7, 2022 at the Faculty of Information Sciences of the Complutense University of Madrid. The term to send us your proposals (title of the communication + abstract of 300 words maximum + brief curricular summary) to the email info.geca@ucm.es and to luciaglv@ucm.
