Short abstract:

The film screening intends to be a forum for debate for those who are interested in visual representations of anthropological/ethnological knowledge. Films should show an original approach to the problem of representing the 'Other', and reflect on the different ways images can be employed in mediating ethnographic realities of different people, and the way they make places, spaces, identities.

Long abstract:

The film screening intends to be a forum for debate for those who are interested in visual representations of anthropological/ethnological knowledge, independent of particular subjects and forms. We are looking forward to receive recent productions, and priority will be given to directors who plan to attend the screening, to allow for an effective exchange of ideas. Films do not have to follow 'anthropological' conventions, but should show an original approach to the problem of representing the 'Other', and reflect on the different ways images can be employed in mediating ethnographic realities of different people, and the way they make places, spaces, identities. Please propose your film via the 'Propose a paper' link below, providing a short and long abstract/description of your film. In the long abstract of your proposal, please also provide the following info: Original film title; English film title; Country and year; Duration; Director(s); Researcher(s); Production Company; Format of screening copy. Films should have English or French subtitles. Work-in-progress will only be considered if the preview DVD gives an sufficient idea of the probable final outcome. Please indicate if you plan to attend the screening of your film in case it will be selected. Please send a clearly marked preview DVD to: SIEFF 2011 "Film Screening", CRIA, Av. Forças Armadas, Ed. ISCTE - sala 2n7, cacifo 237, 1649-026 Lisboa, PORTUGAL.
