17 May 2024
16:00 -17:30


The lecture will introduce some of the most prominent applications of digital technology currently used in film research. Tools such as eye tracking, motion capture or AI now enable film scholars to engage in cutting-edge studies in informed ways and with more substantiated results. Most importantly, such technologies can strengthen the connection between academic research and film production, and also provide a platform that facilitates an interdisciplinary approach to film studies in general.


Dr. Giorgos Dimitriadis is a member of the Laboratory Teaching Staff at the School of English, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. His work focuses on visual perception and cognitive theory applied to digital cinema, revolving around the ways in which the mechanics of vision affect the cognitive functions of the human mind and viewers’ comprehension of films. His academic interests include various aspects of old and new technologies in cinema, worldmaking theory and visual culture, as well as the use of eye tracking in studying viewers’ response to interactive forms of cinema.
