The symposium brings together national and international researchers working on film from different disciplines, traditions, and theoretical perspectives.

Presentations with deal with topics such as moral psychology and narrative cinema; moral psychology and video games; neuroscientific and cognitivst approaches to emotion and cinematic experience; the ethics of empathy in film; phenomenology, ethics, and aesthetics of cinema; phenomenology and eco-aesthetics; phenomenology, ethics, and cinematic poetry; editing techniques and the expression of thought; the relationship between phenomenological and cognitivist approaches to emotion and mood in film.
