Ethnographic Film Screening/ Call for Submissions

The V Congress of the APA will host an ethnographic film screening,  in sessions that will be held in the small auditorium of the Teatro Municipal de Vila Real on September 8, 9, 10 and 11.

The (non-competitive) festival’s theme, ‘Anthropology in Counterpoint’ focuses on films which demonstrate the polyphony and multiplicity of points-of-view that characterizes the anthropological project. Anthropology is a pluralistic undertaking, comprising a variety of modes of knowing and systems of knowledge. We are interested in showcasing the different ways of seeing and being seen, and the differing ways by which images “know” and “make known”. The festival accepts films produced not before 2011 and which, from an ethnographic standpoint, testify the world’s diversity and the diversity of mode of “knowing”. In order to stimulate discussion, preference (not absolute) will be given to the films that will be presented by the filmmakers.
