SERCIA offers seed money for academic events devoted to English-language cinema. All SERCIA members can apply. Applications for the following year must be send to the President, the Vice-President and the Secretary by March 1, 2023. They must include a call for papers, a provisional program and a provisional budget. They will be examined by the SERCIA board. The size of the event and its relevance to the study of English-language cinema and screen will be taken into consideration. The funding will then be given to the research group organizing the event or can be used for a specific expense. In exchange, all promotional material (posters, conference program, websites) must feature the SERCIA logo.
