ETHNOFEST Athens Ethnographic Film Festival: Call for Films - Xenophobia and the Ethnographic Film
The Athens Ethnographic Film Festival continues the exploration of the anthropological world through the image and is looking for films made by anthropologists (or related background), including students' works, either as dissertations or as assignments.
The Athens Ethnographic Film Festival is introducing a new themed-screenings section, which will be showcasing ethnographic films focused on particular social issues. This year's theme is "xenophobia". As we consider issues of racist violence, aggressive expressions of nationalism and social exclusion to be of pressing relevance for the Athenian society today, we have decided to launch the themed section of the festival with a selection of ethnographic films that deal with such issues.
We are inviting submissions for films made by/ in collaboration with anthropologists (or other social scientists), which deal with one or more of the following issues: xenophobia; racism; racist hatred/violence; (religious/ ethnic) intolerance; social exclusion; discrimination; nationalism; euro-centrism.
The deadline is for submissions is July 28th.
