There was a certain conjuncture in the 1970s where film and philosophy joined up, at least for a while. In the last 30 years there has been a huge dissipation between the two spaces, and now there are attempts to bring back together some of the original thinkers about the nature of a theoretical practice with some new people who are interested in both theory and practice and to see where we might go from here. The main questions are very simple - what sort of theory do we teach our film practice students now and why has film practice gone in one direction, towards a mini-industrial process while theory has gone in a different direction, which is more-or-less to avoid practice altogether.
