"Desire for cinema perhaps existed before its creation. Questions regarding this speculation and the variety of ways this longing has been addressed in the past and present form the basis of inquiry in this workshop. Cinema can now be thought in the present as the umbrella term used for the variety of moving image and time-based forms that currently circulate and which have intersecting, yet specific, histories of emergence. As the celluloid matter of film becomes more distant and as digital forms increase, cinema in its expanded sense is becoming further realized.
Cinematic Migrations will be a multi-faceted look at the role of cinema's transmutations over time and its worldwide and circuitous shift, which include the integrations of its form into online video and television, spatial installations, performance and dance, as well as its appearance in many formats and portable devices."
