GIEFF - Call for film

16th German International Ethnographic Film Festival

25 29 May 2022

Call for Films:

Submission deadline: 15 December 2021

Early bird deadline: 25 November 2021

Please forward to filmmakers / students who have produced a film

The festival promotes documentary cinema with a special emphasis on new films, videos or interactive media (published after 1.1.2019) dealing with socio-cultural processes in a wide sense of the term.

The festival is open to all filmmakers, but especially those coming from anthropology, sociology, folklore and neighbouring disciplines. It provides a great opportunity for international co-operation in Visual Anthropology and documentary filmmaking.

The festival encourages young filmmakers to submit their films, as the festival specially supports STUDENT FILMS. Student Film Awards are given to exceptional productions.

The festival addresses film authors, producers, distributors, and viewers. It aims for discussions at the screenings and afterwards between the various groups present to promote the intercultural dialogue on the different aspects of film work.

The Festival is a meeting point of young students of anthropology, sociology and media studies, who are interested in the use of film as research method, mode of publishing and communicating research results.

Taking from last year experience, we plan the next festival as a hybrid festival. We hope we can all meet in Gttingen, but we want to give viewers and especially filmmakers the possibility to participate online not only in just streaming the films but also in joining the discussions.
