CineLab - Laboratory of Cinema & Philosophy 

 

CineLab is a research structure within the larger research-oriented Nova Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA) at the Faculty of Social Sciences and HumanitiesUniversidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal.

CineLab is dedicated to the philosophical thinking of the moving Image, in its aesthetic, epistemological, political and ethical dimensions. 

CineLab seeks to generate a productive dialogue between philosophical thinking and film practice. Its main goal is to contribute to the production of a common and fruitful platform where both philosophers and filmmakers can meet, in order to build together new perspectives on film, encompassing as well the ethical aspects of the medium in terms of social responsibility.

CineLab's main work focuses critically on the way values are conveyed, problematized or deflated through film practice. The question of values, central to IFILNOVA’s theoretical orientation, is addressed through the analysis of how values are represented in films, as well as the study of films as “thought machines”, able to produce values of their own.

The research team is attentive to the numerous ways in which films can “express” philosophy, and to the ways philosophy, in turn, may be used  as a decisive component for a new cinematographic configuration, a tool to make films that are more relevant and more conscious of their historical and universal implications.

The group includes  10 fully integrated researchers and 5 PhD students. CineLab has a Permanent Research Seminar, Workshops, Study Days, and an Annual ConferenceIt organizes regularly Film Screenings and Debates open to the general public, researchers and students, and is deeply involved with the FCT PhD in Artistic Studies.

Several thematic lines are of special interest:

a) Epistemology: the question of truth and its legitimation in cinema.

b) Ethics: issues relating to the representation of the Other through films, and the problem of Human Rights.

c) Aesthetics: the question of the aesthetic force peculiar to cinema and its interrelations with the other arts.

d) Ecology: the question of responsibility vis-à-vis nature and the problem of the separation between nature and culture.
