An international conference focusing on film will be the first event held by the new Oxford Brookes Centre of Research in the Arts (CoRA).

Film Audience Movements and Migrations: Across Borders and Screens (FAMM) takes place online, from 7-9 September 2020. Experts from academia and industry (media businesses, cultural institutions and government bodies) will explore the economic, cultural and political factors prompting changes in film consumption and exhibition. 

Conference themes include:

  • the impact of Covid-19 and the film market
  • the growth of the US multiplex in Europe
  • teenage film consumption
  • the 'worlds' of film, TV and online
  • UK film and TV around the world
  • how one speaker learned to love Crocodile Dundee.

The Centre of Research in the Arts (CoRA)

CoRA is an interdisciplinary research centre that provides a context for the outstanding research in the Arts at Oxford Brookes University and includes Art & Design, Communication, Media and Culture, Digital Media, English, Film, History, Music and Publishing. 

The Centre’s directors, Professor Daniela Treveri Gennari and Professor Paul Whitty, will present an address at the opening of the conference.


CoRA will create collaborative relationships between artists, staff and students, as well as external researchers and practitioners. This will come to life through a programme of events including international exchanges, conferences, symposia and seminar series, held both at Oxford Brookes and at institutions across the UK and overseas.
