Subject Description
This subject uses a range of international case studies to question how film and digital media companies, practitioners, and consumers are challenging the supremacy of creative and cultural contents flowing outward from the United States. Topics investigated include: popular culture flows, media innovation, user experiences in mobile, online and cloud environments, film and digital media co-production policy and practice, Hollywood’s global hegemony, diasporic audiences, film festivals, industry networking summits and trade events, and cultural hearing – all key aspects impacting on the transnational development of the global media and culture industries today.

1. Demonstrate knowledge of issues regarding new industry relationships and practices found in film and digital media productions and co-productions across a range of countries
