ReExpanding Cinema more

The program “Re-Expanding Cinema references the concepts put forth by Gene Youngblood in 1970 published in “Expanded Cinema, which was the first book to consider video as an art form and how it expanded into its own genre. This was an influential moment in that it established the birth of the field of media arts. The argument that expanded cinema is required for a new consciousness might lead one to consider how since then the development and availability of digital technology has re expanded approaches to moving image based artworks utilising new technology and how the establishment of such has “re-expanded cinema to include complete new approaches. In the same vain, cinema "re-expanded" beyond the arts genre and the narrative context of film include new approaches that included many more genre such as comedy, music television, etc.
