2.  Confirmed opening keynote address:
Adrian Martin: “Cinema Invents Ways of Dancing”
'How do you dance, Sandman?'.  That pointed question from Francis 
Coppola's THE COTTON CLUB (1984) cues us into the many forms and 
meanings that dancing has in cinema, once it is liberated from the 
strict confines of the conventional musical. Dance as social action, as 
strategy or resistance ... cinema is always inventing ways of dancing, 
often in the least likely contexts. Taking its cue from writers 
including Serge Daney, this presentation will present (with clips) a 
range of cinematic dance-inventions, from Godard and Akerman to KING OF 

Adrian Martin is the author of Raul Ruiz: Sublimes Obsesiones 
(Altamira, 2004), The Mad Max Movies (Currency, 2003), Once Upon a Time 
in America (BFI, 1998) and Phantasms (Penguin, 1994), as well as the 
Co-Editor of Rouge (www.rouge.com.au)
