AFGHAN BOX CAMERA PROJECT 2012

news for the Afghan Box Camera Project 

(from their kickstarter website)

Update #4: 14 DAYS TO GO!

With 103 backers so far and having gone beyond our initial goal, we’re putting all our effort right now into getting to PESHAWAR, Pakistan to get an insight into the lives of the Afghan photographers who lived there as refugees. And if we manage that any more funds go to hiring extra assistants in Afghanistan to research in small towns around the country. Meanwhile, the British Journal of Photography is going to run a feature on the project in April and we’re also going to exhibit our work (with a box camera of course) at the Ethnology Museum Munich in their upcoming Afghanistan exhibition in October. The project is moving forward. We hope all the way to Peshawar! 

 Best, 

Lukas & Sean

‘Observational realism is an approach which is probably with us to stay, in the sense that it is likely to be rediscovered afresh by each generation of ethnographic documentarists.’ (Loizos, 1999)

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.
