Ethnofest is travelling to Ioannina to meet the Biennale of Western Balkans (BOWB) with a selection of films on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). In the framework of the collaboration with the Directorate of Modern Cultural Heritage, we will screen a selection of the films produced by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, with the latest being created by Ethnofest, on the ICH elements already inscribed or under consideration for inscription in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Alongside we will screen Άλιμα, an observational ethnographic documentary (co-produced by Ethnofest and the Mediterranean Institute for Nature and Anthropos), aiming to discuss on the prospects, difficulties and challenges of anthropological filmmaking under the ICH growing category. On behalf of Ethnofest, Silas Michalakas will be there to introduce the films and discuss with the audience.
