HitchCon announces the third annual International Alfred Hitchcock Conference – HitchCon ‘23 – October 7 & 8, 2023. For the first time, the conference will take place both online and live at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York.
Alfred Hitchcock broke the rules of cinema, created new ones and expanded the horizon of what film can do. HITCHCOCK UNBOUND — Reimagining the Art of the Story will consider these innovations to imagine how storytellers of all kinds might derive inspiration from them today.
An 80th-anniversary screening of his iconic and iconoclastic masterpiece Shadow of a Doubt (1943) will be followed by HitchCon’s popular “ice-box conversations,” known to go late into the night. As Hitchcock scholar and author of The Encyclopedia of Alfred Hitchcock, Thomas Leitch, says, “Love watching Hitchcock’s films? Love the post-screening discussions Hitchcock claimed were indispensable to the filmgoing experience? Then HitchCon is the place to be.”
HitchCon attracts filmmakers and scholars, as well as creative professionals and movie nerds from the Americas and Europe who come to network, develop their creative skills and immerse themselves in the study of the Master of Suspense.
