Call for papers for an international workshop on the audiovisual sector in Madrid

A call for papers has been launched in preparation for the international workshop "Audiovisual sector in the digital age: Policies and strategies for diversity" to be held in Madrid November 5 to 7, 2014.

The topics covered will include:

  • The Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions
  • Public policy, the audiovisual sector, and cultural diversity
  • Diversity in the audiovisual sector: Film, radio, television, music, and video games
  • Best practices for diversity in the digital era
  • Coalitions for cultural diversity and their ties to the audiovisual sector

The deadline for submitting projects is July 1, 2014.
