About Us

The Flickering Landscapes Conference Series is presented by the UCF Center for the Humanities & Digital Research

Purpose:

To examine three key components most often represented in films and television programs made in Florida, set in Florida, or both: Florida’s unique landscape, Florida’s filmmaking history, and Florida’s cultural identity on film.

Objective:

To initiate an ongoing dialogue on the dimensions of how Florida sees itself and is seen by the rest of the country through the lens of popular culture, and what is distinctive about the Florida look on film and television.

Target Audience:

Participants in the conference will be scholars from a broad range of disciplines and professionals working on the history and present of the film and screen experience of Florida and in Florida.
