The International Alfred Hitchcock Conference, HitchCon, returns with a thrilling twist for its third edition on October 7th and 8th, 2023. Breaking new ground, the event will feature a hybrid format, blending online participation with a live gathering at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York.
Themed “HITCHCOCK UNBOUND — Reimagining the Art of the Story,” this year’s conference is set to unravel the storytelling innovations pioneered by the legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Known for defying cinematic norms and shaping new narratives, Hitchcock’s impact on storytelling transcends generations.
Highlighting the event is an exclusive 80th-anniversary screening of Hitchcock’s masterpiece, “Shadow of a Doubt” (1943), followed by the famed “ice-box conversations” — engaging post-screening discussions that delve deep into cinematic nuances.
HitchCon draws filmmakers, scholars, and enthusiasts from the Americas and Europe, providing a unique platform for networking, skill development, and immersive analysis of the “Master of Suspense.” Thomas Leitch, Hitchcock scholar and author of “The Encyclopedia of Alfred Hitchcock,” hails HitchCon as a must-attend for those passionate about Hitchcock’s films and the art of storytelling itself.
