International Ethnological Film Festival in Belgrade

The twenty-seventh International Ethnological Film Festival will be held from 9th to 13th October at the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade, with screenings taking place in the Yugoslav Film Archives and the Ethnographic Museum.

According to the press release, during the five festival days, 53 films from 27 countries will be shown. The Festival’s programme is divided into four parts – a competition selection featuring 26 films, an informative programme, a student programme and a special program.

The festival was launched in 1992, with the aim to promote the folklore and customs of the Balkan and Slavic peoples, mostly through television production. Soon, the festival grew into an event that encompasses cultural and social anthropology from all continents. The mission of the Festival is to underline the importance of cultural heritage, and to portray the wealth and diversity of cultures, the press release said.

“The international festival of ethnological film is not only known for its long tradition, but also the wide scope of films it showcases, as it also covers a variety of different topics, approaches, research methods and the traditional and modern way of life”, Sasa Sreckovic, Executive Director of the Festival said and added: “This year, the focus is on India, which will showcase six films. During the special festival programme, we are also going to screen films shown at the Beijing Ethnographic Film Festival”.
