Lockdown Productions: The challenges of ethnographic filmmaking and audiovisual production | Online discussion @ Ethnofest

Dear list members,  as part of the Ethnographic Film Festival of Athens (Greece), we are holding this online discussion that we think may interest many of you. Have you had a film project in production when Covid19 broke out?Are you wondering how you could turn the current challenging limitations into creative opportunities?Whether you are a student or a professional filmmaker or an audiovisual artist, The challenges of ethnographic filmmaking and audiovisual production | Online discussion will stimulate and inspire you! We encourage you to participate and share your experiences, concerns, discoveries and ideas so that we all can reconsider our tools and approaches and continue to make great films! Feel free to circulate amongst your networks, we will be looking forward to receiving your comments and questions. 

Below is the abstract to the event: In the unpredictable 2020, the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival remains consistent in meeting its audience and returns with a curated online version with 40 films and parallel events With educational and cinematic interest, the parallel events come to frame the films of this year's programme and to give us a chance to interact.One of the most precious characteristics of ethnographic films is their capacity to take their audiences close to the personal worlds of their protagonists through long-term research encounters. Moreover the collaborative nature of such projects often goes beyond the filming encounter itself, in shared decisions in the post-production phase. How has ethnographic and audiovisual production been affected by the current global crisis that imposes social distancing and serious travel limitations? What have students of visual anthropology courses managed to produce during the "lost spring" (and summer) of 2020? Have these restrictions been limitations or opportunities for the films that were produced during these troubling times? We invited Prof. Sofía Velázquez Núñez, (Pontificia Universidad Catolica Del Peru), Dr. Lorenzo Ferrarini (Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, the University of Manchester) and Filmmaker Karen Boswall (University of Sussex) to discuss how creative production had to be re-invented at the time of Covid-19. Τhe discussion will be coordinated by Alexandra D’ Onofrio, Visual Anthropologist and Programmer at Ethnofest.The discussion will be held in English For your registration to the webinar use the following link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_BdsZ9ezpRDesYsOSb6GdXgIn case you didn't get to register, the webinar will be broadcast at the same time to Ethnofest's social media profiles (Facebook, YouTube).

Best wishes to all, Alexandra
