The Cinema Makers free pdf This book investigates how, and why, cinema-goers in south-eastern and central European cities went from being spectators to cinema makers. It explores the practices, such as squatting in existing cinema spaces and organizing cinema 'events', that aided this transition. It draws on a corpus of interviews with cinema activists across Europe making them available to a wider public. It is a fascinating study conducted on the crossroads between film and media studies, and social and political science. The "Cinema Makers" investigates how cinema spectators in south-eastern and central European cities became cinema makers through such practices as writing about film, squatting in existing cinema spaces, organizing cinema events, and making films themselves. Drawing on a corpus of interviews with cinema activists in Germany, Austria, and the former Yugoslavia, Anne Schober compares the activities and artistic productions they staged in Vienna, Cologne, Berlin, Novi Sad, Belgrade, Subotica, Ljubljana, Zagreb, and Sarajevo. The resulting study illuminates the differences and similarities in the development of political culture - and cinema's role in that development - in European countries with pluralist-democratic, one-party socialist, and post socialist traditions.
