Call for Films – 2012

We are very sorry for the delay of this…

Call for Films 2012

The Ethnographic Film Festival of Athens continues the exploration to the anthropological world through the image and for this year we are looking for films made by anthropologists (or related background), including students’ works -either as dissertations or as assignments- In addition we welcome films made by professional filmmakers or film students who had a collaboration with anthropologists or/and social scientists.  

This ethnographic festival doesn’t have a competitive section but through its 3 main sections (Student’s Films, Panorama and Tributes) is aiming to look at the contemporary tendencies of visual anthropology but also at the roots of today’s directions. During the festival there will be open discussions and presentations where we hope to engage in a dialogue on / with the future of ethnographic film and visual anthropology.

The festival addresses a wide audience, and it is an event where ethnographic films directed by anthropologists, by professional filmmakers or by students, are seen together in a combined programme.

Two copies of the films should be submitted in DVD format, containing English sub-titles and they should be accompanied by the participation form  (sent via e-mail) in the address below.

The deadline for films submission is the 15th of July.


The address – for the films to be sent – is:
