Observatory on Contemporary European Cinema

OCEC (Observatory of Contemporary European Cinema) is a research project funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation and led by the group CINEMA (Collective of Aesthetic Research on Audiovisual Media) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. It was initiated in 2006, building on from the previous project Aesthetic Audiovisual Tendencies in the European Context (CEACE) and since it has developed an intense research activity, whose main outputs have been three editions of the International Showcase of Contemporary European Cinema (MICEC, 2006, 2007 i 2008), hence consolidating the task initiated with the 1st International Conference on Contemporary European Cinema (CICEC, 2005). The project is currently focused on the study of gesture in contemporary European cinema, with two upcoming public outcomes: an International Congress and a publication.
