Annual international film festival and conference: Cine-Excess VI

"Cine–Excess VI was entitled 'Transglobal Excess: The Art and Atrocity of Cult Adaptation' and took place at the Odeon Covent Garden and the Italian Cultural Institute, London between the 24–26th May 2012. The event focused on global adaptations of cult narratives, genres, themes and icons across a broad range of media and fiction formats. From pulp novels into pulp horror films and recent big budget blockbuster remakes of marginal midnight movies, to nationally defined interpretations of the pre–established extreme, the cult image remains a fascinating index of adaptation, whose wide array of remakes, renditions and realisations frequently reveals fascinating issues of nation and narrative, as well cultural, regional and historical distinction."

Mise-en-scene, Montage, and the Unique Language of Film

"Mise–en–scène refers to the visual design of a film. A narrative film's visual elements can include lighting, set décor, costume design, props, blocking, spatial relationships, scene composition – Mise–en–scène is how these visual elements work together to tell the story. Every visual element designed for narrative film is considered mise–en–scène. Even non–narrative films, such as documentaries, can be said to have a certain degree of mise–en–scène. This arrangement and design expresses aspects of the characters, themes, and story that are necessarily in dialogue."
