All accepted films are eligible for these traveling Ethnografilm festivals in Asia and Africa. Because these are one day festivals, shorter offerings are general preferred by the local organizers in Trivandrum (Kerala) and Nairobi (Kenya).
These new annual events are organized by Ideas in Progress in Kerala and Multimedia University of Kenya, and the New Orleans Jazz Museum in New Orleans.
Ethnografilm Asia typically occurs in in Kerala, India in June, followed in July by Ethnografilm Africa ( Nairobi, Kenya). The subset of films is selected annually by the advisory board and local organizers of the events.
Festivals in India and Africa are shorter than the Paris Ethnografilm–one day, rather than four full days. Shorter films are prioritized by the local selectors for these events. Films that play in the gallery rather on than the main screen in Paris are also eligible for inclusion and are often included for Ethnografilm Africa and Ethnografilm Asia.
