In 2017, the GSSN began a new collaboration with the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS). A Special Interest Group (SIG)on German Screen Studies was established within BAFTSS, with the aim to provide a forum within UK Screen Studies for research collaboration and exchange on German-language film and media.


The SIG aims to run one or two panels annually at the BAFTSS yearly conference. SIG members are invited by the convenor to propose pre-constituted panels. Panel convenors are asked where possible to relate their panel to the conference annual themes, but to sustain a special focus on German-language screen media and/or German-related production, distribution and exhibition contexts.
