The Agency of Film Festivals. Geopolitics, Economies and Networks seeks to foster an interdisciplinary and intersectional reading of film festivals, here conceived as a historiographic “dispositive”, as cultural formations and as financial institutions. Within a single and cohesive research framework, this curated collection makes a two-fold intervention in film festivals studies: on the one hand, it investigates how film festivals, by championing certain discourses of and on cinema and media, contribute to articulate and re-position specific national, cultural, gender identities. On the other hand, it analyses the process by which film festivals add value within the film industry as much as to local touristic economies.
