(p.194) Conclusion
Short Films from a Small Nation

C. Claire Thomson

Edinburgh University Press

The conclusion returns to Actor-Network Theory to consider how its methodologies can reveal hitherto hidden aspects of the making of films and the making of facts. It further discusses three avenues for future research, as suggested by the case studies in the book: the analysis of multiple language versions of films, for example using Digital Humanities techniques; the possibilities afforded by digitisation ans streaming for the creation of a new dispositif for informational films as national heritage, and the limitations imposed by national intellectual property law; and the difficulties of tracking and evaluating the impact and cultural value of informational films.
