Mapping Global Horror: Australia, Japan and Beyond

March 17, 2023 - March 18, 2023

Accompanying ACMI’s Focus on the Dead is a two-day conference, Mapping Global Horror: Australia, Japan and Beyond, in partnership with Swinburne University of Technology and University of Pittsburgh.

Tthe program is an opportunity to further explore the global phenomenon of horror cinema through talks and presentations with world-leading academics, researchers and directors, including Japanese-Australian writer/director Natalie Erika James.

Providing an incisive look into horror, the Mapping Global Horror conference is a chance for screen industry professionals, academics and horror fans to deep dive into a genre that is as popular as it is socially and culturally significant worldwide. With Australia and Japan as primary entry points for a discussion, conversations and workshops hosted across two days will cover a breadth of new and revitalised themes and ideas, such as zombies, women in horror and folk horror.
