Moving Beyond the Arab World: Acting Styles in Films from the Region
Sun 10/26/2014 14:30 Ballroom 3
Films from the Middle East have slowly gained international distribution, but the majority of these films remain limited to their own territories. One theory about why this happens says that the style of acting in Arabic films is not favoured by international sales entities and audiences around the world. ADFF Talks Film opens the debate on this issue with leading international and regional industry professionals.

Sun 10/26/2014 16:30 Ballroom 3
New methods of making movies have made it difficult to guarantee these films will survive over time. More things are being produced digitally, but they still need to be properly preserved. The Film Foundation and its World Cinema Project guides filmmakers on how to plan for the protection and preservation of their films for the future.
