The Uses of Cinema: Second biennial conference of the Screen Studies Association of Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand (SSAAANZ)

In recent years film and television scholarship has seen a renewed focus on the uses of cinema – that is, on educational, instructional, non-theatrical, client-sponsored and government-sponsored filmmaking – in collections such as Films That Work (Hediger and Vonderau, 2009), Useful Cinema (Acland and Wasson, 2011), Films of Fact: A History of Science in Documentary Films and Television
 (Boon 2008) and Learning with the Lights Off: Educational Film (Orgeron, Orgeron and Streible 2012).

This work – along with 2018’s fiftieth anniversary of the events of May 1968 – provides an occasion for reflection upon the usefulness of film and television practice and scholarship, and offers twin points of reference for the Second Biennial Conference of the Screen Studies Association of Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand (SSAAANZ).
