Submissions have closed for the 4th festival. Filmmakers will be notified by the first week of February.
Our opening reception is the evening of the 11th will be the best ever: Buswell & Nyberg’s Paris Orchestra Challenge Shaun Buswell will be coming from London to Paris in early April. They will collect various street musicians who play various instruments, then write an original piece, to be premiered and performed by this collection of folks who were previously unknown to each other—at our reception. Pretty wild.

What is the Ethografilm festival? An interview with the Director during the 2016 festival.
By tradition, our last film is always the projectionist’s choice!
After the last session of Ethnografilm over 30 directors retired to the nearby Autour du Moulin to continue the discussion!
