MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Ethnografilm accepts all non-fiction film genres, promoting the systematic understanding of the social world through film. The festival serves as a showcase and forum for dialog between independent and academic filmmakers. 

Marked by its contemporary relevance and broad intellectual range, the purpose of Ethnografilm is to understand society, culture, and social issues. We honor passion in the acquisition of moving images, encourage creativity in editing those images, and revere the spirit of filmmakers who expand our knowledge of the social world. 




ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
For our second (2015) festival, Ethnografilm seeks to increase the number of student and first-film submissions, particularly short films.

We seek to promote audiovisual work that advances our understanding of "humans doing things, and/or not doing things, together." EF selections--short and feaure length films alike--will share the following characteristics: They might constitute a videographic study of some aspect of human society. They may "tell a story" about human social actions, beliefs, or institutions, or current events. They may reflect the filmmaker's experience. They may offer a critical explanation of social life or culture.

Ethnografilm includes a unique "academic" category. An "academic" film is generally considered to be one with an academic or educator in a principal role (editor, director, producer). Please contact us if you have any questions.

Ethnographic films may arise from the use of various techniques, including but not limited to interviews, observation, animation, map-making, archival analysis, life histories, and so forth. 

Directors of ethnographic films need not be academicians, but anyone with a careful observational perspective who seeks to illuminate social life, patterns or institutions. Accordingly, we accept films made by both ethnographers and filmmakers who help us to understand social life in a particular quadrant of the world.

The festival is co-sponsored by the International Social Science Council (ISSC), the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S). The University Film and Video Association is one of our principal collaborators, along with many documentary and ethnographic festivals throughout the world.
