Film terminology online conference FilmTerm 2021

Film terminology conference FilmTerm 2021 will be held on August 16th.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Conference has moved online, with discussion group sessions in Zoom.

The main goal of the FilmTerm 2021 is to present the latest terminology work in the field of Cinema. We will present free online tools and best practices for terminology work. We also aim to encourage film students and young researchers to take up the terminology work by providing a platform to network with the international community of terminology researchers. We hope to create a common vision for the film terminology research; and urge filmmakers and researchers worldwide to get involved in the development of a comprehensive multilingual database. 

The conference is organized by Baltic Film, Media and Arts School of Tallinn University and Estonian Film Database, in cooperation with National Film School of the Latvian Academy of Culture, University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy, Lusófona University, Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, and The International Association of Film and Television Schools CILECT, with the support of the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.

The list of keynote speakers, schedule and the link to the event will be made public in the second half of June on this page and the Facebook page of the event. For participation, online registration is required.

The conference language is English.
