The 12th International Conference and Festival on Global Cult Film Traditions
Over the last 12 years, the Cine-Excess International Film Conference and Festival has brought together leading scholars with global cult filmmakers and industry figures for an annual event that combines a themed academic conference with director interviews and UK theatrical premieres of upcoming film releases.
Cine-Excess XII will examine the importance of cult performativity across a wide range of genres, formats, national traditions and modes of critical interpretation.
Proposals are now invited for papers that assess the centrality of the cult performer within these differing contexts.
