Film Selection of the 8th ETNOFILm Festival, Rovinj, April 28-30, 2016

The eight edition of ETNOFILm – International Festival of Ethnographic Film will be held in Rovinj, April 28 – 30, 2016.

ETNOFILm Festival is a project launched in 2008 as a side project of the Ethnographic Museum of Istria, with an aim of promoting visual anthropology which, on one side encourages production of ethnographic film in a narrow and disciplinary sense of the word – that of films who’s authors are professional ethnographers and anthropologists, and on the other side affirms documentaries that go beyond both disciplines and help develop a more heterogeneous approach to ethnography and visual anthropology.

The project has evolved with time and in a close collaboration with the City of Rovinj and its cultural institutions – with a clear mission of strengthening the position of Croatian ethnographic film in a broader European context, and with an aim of fully developing its potentials. Along this, it has succeeded in proving that ethnographic film is not only aimed at participants/authors who are  professionals in the field of anthropology, ethnology and/or film and has also managed to evolve into an international festival with a program composed of workshops, seminars and lectures, concerts and of course – ethnographic documentary films. The award for best film is in itself a work of art, created and designed (for the third year in a row) by young artists – students of the Academy of Applied Arts (APURI) at the University of Rijeka, Croatia.

The selection of the eighth edition of the festival is somewhat different and carries a strong personal mark of a many year member of the ETNOFILm organizational board, a professional ethnologist and anthropologist and a new media artist Bojan Mucko, who has solely selected the official film program. His final selection is composed of a total of thirty film titles, mostly consisted of Croatian authors, many of whom will have a Croatian premiere in Rovinj. As a part of this years’ festival program we will play films divided into two following categories: Films of professional ethnologists/anthropologists and students of ethnology/anthropology and Films of authors who are not professional ethnologists/anthropologists.
