Monday October 23rd, 2017

For the 8th consecutive year, the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival – Ethnofest returns to cine Astor, presenting exciting ethnographic films from all over the world. Among others, this year’s edition consists of two special screenings – John Marshall’s “The Hunters” and the participatory documentary “The Maribor Uprisings” by Maple Razsa and Milton Guillén – interesting side-events, panels and open discussions, educational activities and a masterclass.

The 8th Ethnofest will also present a themed section entitled “Labour and Precarity”, curated by anthropologists Dimitra Kofti (Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology) and Mao Mollona (Goldsmiths College, University of London), as well as the themed section “Man and the Environment”, curated by Alexis Katsaros, member of the organization MedINA, and Calliope Stara, post-doc researcher at the University of Ioannina. The themed section “Man and the Environment” is being organized in collaboration with the Directorate of Modern Cultural Assets and Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Last but not least, the 8th Ethnofest will inaugurate a new section, called “Greek Ethnographies”. This section will present films that explore and reflect upon social and cultural practices in Greece through the ethnographic lens.
