Cinema City Cultures is a network of collaborative research projects examining and questioning the interconnection between cinema, modernity and urbanity – one of the key topics within film, cinema and visual studies. Cinema City Cultures brings together researchers who deal with this topic by using empirical research on urban cinematic practices and experiences. Inspired by a new cinema history approach, projects within the Cinema City Cultures network concentrate on cinematic places and spaces, programming and audience experiences.

Bringing together projects from different countries and continents, the network fosters inter- and multidisciplinarity, international collaborative and comparative research, as well as those of new digital research approaches. Cinema City Cultures is an initiative by Daniel Biltereyst and Philippe Meers. For an overview of projects and researchers, see here.
