Dear film festival researchers:

My colleague Maria Paz-Peirano (University of Kent) and I (Aida Vallejo,
University of the Basque Country) are currently co-editing a book on the
intersections between *Film Festivals and Anthropology*.  The book is
planned as a collection of chapters, looking into the possibilities of
using the methodological and theoretical frameworks of Anthropology, for
the study of film festivals. Also, it addresses the role of ethnographic
film festivals in the development of Visual Anthropology. The book aims to
explore the field of film festivals that are specialised in ethnographic or
anthropological films, as well as the ethnographic and anthropological
approaches to non-specialised film festival events. To this end, we invite
submissions by both scholars and film festival professionals. The suggested
topics include, but are not limited to:

-        History of ethnographic/anthropological film festivals
-       Comparative and critical perspectives on
ethnographic/anthropological film festivals
-        Ethnographic accounts on specific film festivals or film festival
-        Anthropological analysis of films festival events
-        Anthropology and  indigenous film festivals
-        The future of ethnographic film festivals
-        Circulation of ethnographic/anthropological films
-        Ethnographic/anthropological sidebars  at main, non-specialised
films festivals
Festival reports, as well as interviews, will also be considered.

 If you are interested in collaborating with the book, please send an
abstract about the possible topic of your chapter (about 350 words), as
well as 5 biblographical references and short CV (5 lines) to this email:
festivalsanthropology at gmail.com


Abstract should be sent before *January 20th, 2014.*
Final version of the chapter to be submitted by *September 2014.*
