This roundtable explores the collapsing of the separate media concepts of film and television as
"TV" becomes more filmic than film, more cinematic than movies themselves.  We are witnessing the
confluence of production values, means of production, narrative form and style, and the ways in which
content is consumed, reviewed, funded, and awarded. The two media have seemingly become
synchronous, simultaneous and potentially interchangeable.  This Roundtable will focus on film,
television, and streaming content, and the places that they will inhabit and occupy in the future of
visual media and the cultural imagination.
