|FILLM's 2020 Congress Postponed till 2021!|
| 23.4.2020 |
The 28th International FILLM Congress was set to take place at the University of Vienna, Austria at the end of July 2020. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the congress has been postponed till July 2021.
Due to the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the local organizers of the 28th International FILLM Congress in Vienna and the FILLM Committee have closely monitored the developments and considered the consequences for the Congress.
Given the situation in Austria as well as the rest of the world, the Committee have in consultation with the local organizers deemed it unrealistic that the Congress should be able to go ahead on the original dates, 26-29 July 2020.
Instead of a cancellation or a shift of venue, the FILLM Committee has decided to take up the local organizers' proposal of a postponement until July 2021. The new dates for 28th International Congress are 18-21 July 2021.
Accepted paper and panel proposals are automatically valid the Congress in 2021. FILLM is also looking into extending the deadline for the Call for Papers until the end of 2020. Participants who have already made hotel bookings are encouraged to contact the local organizers who may be able to assist with the practicalities. For more information, please see the Congress website.
In connection with the Congress, the General Meeting of the FILLM Committee was supposed to take place in Vienna on 26 July 2020. Given the importance of some of the items on the agenda (e.g. elections to the FILLM Committee), it has been decided that the meeting will go ahead on the 26 July 2020 in the form of teleconference. Because of the time differences between Committee members' home countries, it has been decided that the meeting's agenda will be restricted to the most urgent issues.
The FILLM Committe would like to extent their sincerest thanks to Adams Bodomo and his colleagues at the University of Vienna for making the postponement possbile.
