I have nothing to do with this conference, but just saw it and
thought I'd forward it to the list...

Sixty-Eight! Europe, Cinema, Revolution?
A Film Festival and Conference at Yale University
Thursday, February 15 to Saturday, February 17, 2007
Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall St., New Haven, CT

Sixty-Eight! Europe, Cinema, Revolution? will focus on the New Wave
cinemas of Eastern and Western Europe leading up to and in the
aftermath of the political showdowns of 1968. The European Studies
Council, along with the Film Studies Program and the Department of
the History of Art, has organized the festival around a wide variety
of films from many countries, from little-known gems and avant-garde
shorts to recognized cinematic classics. The festival will interlace
feature films, documentaries, and experimental films with
introductions by scholars and critics from a range of disciplines,
and informal panels and open discussions. A complete list of
participants and details may be found at http://www.yale.edu/
