Ethnografilm 2016

SUBMISSIONS have closed for the 2016 festival. Official notices will be sent before the end of January.

The dates of the 2016 festival are March 30 (Wednesday) through April 2nd (Saturday at 11pm).
An opening reception for filmmakers will take place on March 29th, Tuesday evening.

All non-fiction films (earliest release date Jan. 2011) are eligible for the 2017 festival. Submissions open in May 2016.

Ethnografilms are not simply about far away people and places.  We particularly solicit movies about modern life  as well as remote corners of the planet!

Vimeo links are accepted by both Withoutabox and FilmFreeway.  No DVDs please.

After the last session of Ethnografilm 2015, over 30 directors retired to the nearby Autour du Moulin to continue the discussion!
