AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'One of the most profound shifts to have occurred in film consumption over the past century has been the emergence of technologies that support viewing outside movie theatres. Platforms such as television, home video, DVD/ Blu-ray and PCs brought film into our homes. More recent innovations such as iPad, laptops and smart phones allow film to travel with us, offering audiences unprecedented viewing flexibility and convenience. Collectively these non-theatrical formats have radically transformed the locational interface of film spectatorship - transporting it from something available only to consumers in a public setting to something that can be watched in a wide range of private and shared spaces. As has been noted by authors including Henry Jenkins (2006) and Ramon Lobato (2012), these developments have significantly broadened the scope and opportunities for cinematic engagement and participation.'
