The next RFN conference will be held in Genoa (13-17/06) – The Cfp is open!

We’re very happy to announce that the Genova conference is going ahead this year!

It’s taken some time due to problems with the organization at the local level, but we’re back on track, with a little help from the wonderful RFN Steering Group, and we’re finally ready to reopen the CFP for a few weeks. We’ve decided to reopen the call to give people a chance to participate if they hadn’t sent anything last year, when things still felt more uncertain. We’ll be accepting proposals until March 7th.
We’re going to get in touch with everyone who had already sent us a proposal last year in the next couple of weeks, so you’ll be hearing from us soon.

Please note that the conference email address is still rfngenova21, because it would be impractical to change it, so that’s not a typo in the CFP. The CFP is also available on the RFN website, where we’ll be publishing updates on registration and other practical information. Although this is going to be a festival/conference, we’re only accepting proposals for the conference bit (see CFP for details), not for films.
Here’s the link to the updated CFP on the RFN website:https://radicalfilmnetwork.com/conferences/genoa-2022/
We’re really looking forward to getting together again for the RFN conference and hope to see you in Genova next June!

The 2021 edition of the Radical Film Festival will be held in Genoa / Il Radical Film Festival 2021 si terrà a Genova

The Visual Sociology Research Group will be co-hosting the Radical Film Network Conference and Festival in June 2021. The RFN is an international network for individuals and organisations involved in politically-engaged and aesthetically innovative film culture and we’ve decided to host its annual meeting in Genoa 20 years after the G8, as we’d like this to be an opportunity for us all not just to look back at the role of radical film culture in the mobilizations surrounding that event, but also (and especially) to reflect on and organize radical film practices in the very odd present we’re going through and in years to come.

The Radical Film Network was founded in 2013 when a group of activists, academics, filmmakers and programmers involved in radical film culture in the UK met to discuss the ways in which they could work together to support its development, growth and sustainability.

Since then the RFN has grown rapidly, and now consists of more than one hundred organisations across four continents. Affiliated organisations range from artists’ studios and production collectives to archives, co-ops, distributors, film festivals and exhibition venues, as well as a host of other less easily categorised groups.

Il Laboratorio di Sociologiva Visuale co-ospiterà la Radical Film Network Conference and Festival nel giugno del 2021. La RFN è una rete internazionale di individui e organizzazioni coinvolte nella cultura cinematografica politicamente impegnata ed esteticamente innovativa. Abbiamo deciso di ospitare la sua conferenza annuale a Genova a 20 anni dal G8, poiché vorremmo che questa fosse un’opportunità per tutti noi non solo per guardare indietro al ruolo della cultura cinematografica radicale nelle mobilitazioni relative a quell’evento, ma anche (e soprattutto) per riflettere sull’organizzazione delle pratiche cinematografiche radicali nello strano presente che stiamo attraversando e nel prossimo futuro.
Il Radical Film Network è stato fondato nel 2013 quando un gruppo di attivisti, accademici, registi e programmatori coinvolti nella cultura cinematografica radicale nel Regno Unito si sono incontrati per discutere i modi in cui potevano lavorare insieme per supportarne lo sviluppo, la crescita e la sostenibilità.
Da allora la RFN è cresciuta rapidamente e ora è composta da più di cento organizzazioni in quattro continenti. Le organizzazioni affiliate vanno da studi di artisti e collettivi di produzione ad archivi, a cooperative, distributori, festival cinematografici e sedi di mostre, nonché ad una serie di altri gruppi meno facilmente categorizzabili.
