Women and the Silent Screen 10/Eye International Conference 2019 – Sisters, Eye Filmmuseum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, May 25-29, 2019


The 10th Women and the Silent Screen conference will take place May 25-29, in Amsterdam at the Eye Filmmuseum!

“Women and the Silent Screen (WSS), an international conference held biennially, brings together research focusing on all forms of women’s presence in the earliest decades of motion picture history. After its first edition in Utrecht in 1999, the conference is coming back to the Netherlands to celebrate its twentieth year. The theme of WSS X is Sisters, taken both literally and figuratively within a wide range of theoretical and historical angles.

The Eye International Conference, held annually, explores contemporary archival and academic debates, catering to film heritage professionals, scholars, archivists, curators, and restorers. The conference includes panels and special screenings of (restored) films.”
