The Archaeology Channel Conference on Cultural Heritage Film

To Scholars and Film Makers :

Archaeological Legacy Institute is extending its deadline for paper
submissions for The Archaeology Channel Conference on Cultural
Heritage Film to be held May 9-11 in Eugene, Oregon, USA, in
conjunction with our Ninth annual installment of The Archaeology
Channel International film and Video Festival (May 8-12). The
deadline for abstract and symposium submissions now is February 29,
2012. The Conference will be held at the University of Oregon Baker
Downtown Center. This is an international event, with films and
film-makers coming from around the globe. Conference presenters will
receive tickets to all film screenings.

Papers on applications of film (academic, cultural, practical,
educational) will be considered for conference presentation. There
will also be an open discussion of Festival films. The goals of this
conference are three-fold: (1) to promote the creation, distribution
and use of cultural heritage film as an influence for broad cultural
awareness and understanding; (2) to bring together educators,
film-makers, archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, journalists,
historic preservationists, environmentalists, geographers, and others
interested in cultural heritage and its connections to the natural
environment; and (3) to encourage the exchange of new ideas and
approaches to employ film for the common good of all humanity.

The official call for papers is posted in our Festival area at TAC
Festival information may be found now at, where
hotel information is posted as well. We encourage you to participate
(for no fee) even if you don?t present a paper. Please do not
hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing
from you and seeing you at this year?s event. Please share this
information as widely as possible.
