Calling All Filmmakers!
2009 Taiwan International Ethnographic Film Festival
Coming on Oct 2nd, 2009
Entry submission deadline: June 10th, 2009
TIEFF is organized by the Taiwan Association of Visual Ethnography, a non-profit organization dedicated to greater public awareness of documentary and ethnographic films, and co-organized by the Institute of Ethnology at the Academia Sinica of Taiwan. TIEFF is more than a venue for screening films and videos; it is also a forum for education, discussion, and exchange. TIEFF considers every film selected to be equally valuable; therefore, there is no competition section in the event.
This year's edition "Body and Soul" will invite curious audience to a multi-cultural investigation of medical/alternative healing practices. Possible topics that candidate films draw attention to can include, but are not limited to: Health care in the developing world/Indigenous, traditional, and alternative healing practices/Epidemics and infectious disease, suffering and care, etc. In creating the theme, the festival seeks stories and examples all around the world to cultivate common understanding of issues on physical and mental health beyond the confines of traditional medicines, in order to encompass heterogeneous, physical and spiritual practices which shape health care around the world.
We’re looking to screen films in the following categories:
A) Central Theme: Documentary works themed on MEDICAL/ALTERNATIVE HEALING, of any time
B) New Vision: Cultural documentary works OF ANY SUBJECT, completed within 2007-2009
Please send us entries now, or recommend to us films that the program cannot miss this year!
