*CFP: NECSUS (Film festivals review section), Film Festivals and COVID-19*

Film festivals around the world feel the impact of the outbreak of the
COVID-19 virus. Events are cancelled, postponed or shift to online
happenings. For the open access journal NECSUS we specifically solicit
"festival reviews" that deal with film festivals in the context of
COVID-19. What tactics and strategies are employed to face the current
crisis in the festival world? Possible topics to consider include:
- discussion of festival decision-making: cancellation, postponement, going
digital, etc....
- review of alternative (online) festival programming
- turning your eye to the digital competition: whose filling the current
- review of (lack of) national support measures to protect organizations
and professionals
- curating at a time of social distancing

Contributions are max 2,500 words. For other guidelines see
Deadline for submission will be late August.

If you are interested in contributing, please contact the section editors
Marijke de Valck (m.devalck at uu.nl) and Antoine Damiens (
Antoine.damiens at mail.mcgill.ca) with a short proposal.
Necsus | Review Submissions<https://necsus-ejms.org/review-submissions/>
Festival Review Submissions. The NECSUS film festival review section
publishes critical writing on film festivals. It offers a platform for
writing that falls between the fast and prolific genre of individual
festival reports and the slow and rigorous labor of film festival research.
