Göttingen International Ethnographic Film Festival
12 – 16 May, 2010
An Offer for Students’ Excursions to the Festival
The festival presents the most recent productions of ethnographic films and acts as a platform for a dialogue between anthropology and documentary filmmaking.
More informations about the festival: http://www.gieff.de/
Film submission deadline: 15 December, 2009.
The festival encourages young filmmakers to submit their films, as the festival specially supports STUDENT FILMS and awards the best with the STUDENT FILM AWARD 2010.
Furthermore a SPECIAL AWARD is given in 2010 by the Centro Inconri Umani in Ascona/Switzerland for the best film promoting intercultural understanding in the context of natural disasters or human conflicts.
GIEFF 2010 also presents a special program on the filmic documentation of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
GIEFF acts as an international meeting place for students of anthropology and other social sciences who deal with film as a method for research and documentation, or as a means of communication or presentation. We specially support meetings at the festival of student groups from different universities, both with filmmakers and experts, but also among the student groups themselves.
GIEFF therefore presents this SPECIAL OFFER for STUDENT GROUPS of 5 and more than students from one university:
-20% discount on festival fee also for late registering participants
-additional 10 % excursion discount for all
-simplified group registration by group leader/coordinator
-room made available for group meetings during the festival
-additional information material about filmmakers present at festival.
In past years, teachers have used this offer to organise, in the summer semester, a seminar about recent trends in visual anthropology and obtain excursion funding from their universities.
