Amateur Cinema Studies

Amateur Cinema Studies

In 2010, Annamaria Motrescu-Mayes, affiliated lecturer and research associate at the University of Cambridge (UK), has founded a network that brings together scholars and visual artists concerned with the study and production of amateur cinema. The Amateur Cinema Studies Network (ACSN) aims to advance the study of amateur cinema through pioneering scholarship and international collaborative research and practice-based projects.

The ACSN has a website where you can find a lot of informations about projects, publications, screenings and events regarding the study or the preservation of amateur films, mainly in North-America and Europe.
