Göttingen Film Festival: Call for Films

10th Göttingen International Ethnographic Film Festival
12 – 16 May, 2010
Call for Films: Submission deadline: 15 December 2009


The festival promotes documentary cinema with a special emphasis on new films, videos or interactive media (published after 1.1.2007) dealing with socio-cultural processes in a wide sense of the term.
The festival is open to all filmmakers, but especially those coming from anthropology, sociology, folklore and neighbouring disciplines. It provides a great opportunity for international co-operation in Visual Anthropology and documentary filmmaking.
The festival encourages young filmmakers to submit their films, as the festival specially supports STUDENT FILMS and awards the best with the Student Film Award 2010.

  • Furthermore a SPECIAL AWARD is given in 2010 by the Centro Inconri Umani in Ascona/Switzerland for the best film promoting intercultural understanding in the context of natural disasters or human conflicts.
  • GIEFF 2010 also presents a special program on the filmic documentation of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

The festival addresses film authors, producers, distributors, and viewers.
It aims for discussions at the screenings and afterwards between the various groups present to promote the intercultural dialogue on the different aspects of film work.
The Festival is a meeting point of young students of anthropology, sociology and media studies, who are interested in the use of film as research method, mode of publishing and communicating research results.
