It seems that the world has never been as small as it is today. Everything seems to be within arm's reach, we believe we can satisfy our curiosity and gain an insight into the events taking place at any chosen point on our planet at any moment. However, this impression is misleading. We do not have a wide selection of choices that would enable us to freely decide which ones we will pay greater attention to. Everything that is within arm's reach and sight has been previously screened and selected.
Dear guests and authors,
It's my pleasure to announce completion of festival program. The schedule of screenings can be seen here: schedule.
The festival venue this year is Slovenian Cinematheque, screenings will be held between 1st and 4th of March.
You are warmly invited.
We would like to thank to all authors, producers and distributors, who found our festival as a relevant and reputable event. In the following weeks we will have more tasks and duties than spare time, but our plan is to finish with the selection process already in the next month – January. Each applicant will be promptly informed on our decision personally by email.
With the premiere of film Od pera do vajkoža the special event of Days of ethnographic film has concluded. Once again thanks to all the participants - authors, lecturers and visitors.
Bellow you can find some media reports:
We are organizing special event, retrospective and conference about films on cultural heritage, which are made by non-professionals. It will be held at ZRC SAZU in Ljubljana on 8th and 9th March 2016. Program and schedule are available in catalog (Slovene only).
Organizers are Slovene Ethnological Society and Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Institute of Slovenian Ethnology.
Days of Ethnographic Film are changing. They are adapting to changes in the field of visual ethnography, and the same time also to their hosting conditions and environment.
The biggest news is that the event will become biennial in form.
Triglav National Park (TNP) has organized special screenings in their information centers in Bled, Bohinj and Trenta. They choose film Still by Matti Bauer, which is showing a fragment of life in similar mountainous region in Germany. It was promotion of our festival but above all approach to audience, which is not regular visitor of ethnographic festivals or cinema. We would like to thanks Ana Kunstelj, the organizer of the event, for opportunity and her commitment to ethnographic films.
