Maria Paz-Peirano (University of Kent) and 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

   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:
