Now in its third year, Film Geographies invites submissions of short films for the RGS-IBG annual conference responding to the annual theme. This year it is ‘Climate Changed Geographies’
With the theme Climate Changed Geographies the RGS-IBG 2023 conference invites a conversation about how climate change is, and is not, changing our discipline – our ways of knowing, exploring, understanding and acting geographically – and with what consequences. It also opens up debates about the kinds of geographies – urban, political, social, cultural, economic, regional, glacial, fluvial and more – that are and are not being changed by climate change. We also especially welcome films that reflect on how filmmaking can help the discipline adapt to decolonising the academy and navigating the recent AI-accelerated shift to online learning and research, including the growing interest in creative research methods and teaching practices more generally.
What kind of film? We accept any Format/genre: ethnographic, fiction, documentary, animation, experimental, interactive, immersive, participatory etc (Note we cannot accept or review any films made solely to promote a course, department or institution) When submitting please state whether your film is 1. Completed film2. Work In Progress 3. Student Film Length < 5 mins or 5-25 mins
