Ethnografilm 2016

SUBMISSIONS for Ethnografilm 2016 Now Open!  The dates of the festival are March 29 through April 3rd.

All non-fiction films (earliest release date Jan. 2010) are eligible for the 2016 festival.   “Ethnographic” films are not simply about far away people and places.  We particularly solicit movies about modern life  as well as remote corners of the planet!

Submit to the 2106 festival before August 31, 2015 for reduced rates at Withoutabox!  If you would rather use a Vimeo link, add it to your film Synopsis in WAB.  No DVDs please.

After the last session of Ethnografilm 2015, over 30 directors retired to the nearby Autour du Moulin to continue the discussion!  Submissions for the 2016 edition of Ethnografilm will be open the last week of May.

April in Paris! Ethnografilm features Q&A after each session and free tours of the historic Montmartre district.  Over 90% of the directors whose films were selected will be in attendance.

Since the beginning of modern cinema, viewers and critics alike have been transfixed by light contrasted with darkness. We celebrate the 2015 International Year of Light with this salute to film noir.
