The Colour Fantastic: Chromatic Worlds of Silent Cinema will provide a new forum to explore contemporary archival and academic debates around colour in the silent era. The conference will explore a diverse range of archival and academic topics and provide a stimulating environment for specialists from across different disciplines. It will also include screenings of restored and/or rarely seen films. The event will be held at EYE (Amsterdam) from 29 to 31 March 2015. Papers and pre-formed panel proposals are invited on the following themes: avant-garde and abstract colour; restoration and preservation; technologies; animation; intermediality; aesthetics and cultural contexts. Papers are also welcome working with films from the EYE Open Beelden website. Proposals of 300 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 1 September 2014. The conference is co-organised by EYE, Giovanna Fossati (University of Amsterdam), Tom Gunning (University of Chicago), and the Leverhulme Trust research project ‘Colour in the 1920s: Cinema and Its Intermedial Contexts’, run by Sarah Street (University of Bristol) and Joshua Yumibe (University of St Andrews/Michigan State University).
