We are opening the online submission for the DEF 2023 festival. The event will be held in March 2023 and will take place at the Slovenian Cinematheque.
We need to notify you of a minor program change. Due to the absence of the author, the conversation with Lisbet Holtedahl will be replaced by a conversation about her work with individual film excerpts, led by dr. Sarah Lunaček, Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Faculty of Arts, and Manca Filak, Institute of Slovene Ethnography, ZRC SAZU.

Since the 1960s, she has researched women’s everyday lives and ever-changing societies in Cameroon, Niger and in Norway. She is an internationally recognised author of ethnographic and documentary films. Continue reading
