This article uses the work of Pierre Bourdieu to assess the economization of global art cinema and film festivals. Bourdieu has written extensively on art and its function in society. He is most famous for his novel argumentation on the correlation between aesthetic taste and class in Distinction. This article, however, focuses on his later work on the field of cultural production, which offers advantageous conceptual frames for examining the changing intersections between art and commerce at contemporary film festivals.
