The Athens Ethnographic Film Festival and the Fårö Creative Learning center are organizing a seminar on ethnographic cinema, ideal for anthropology students, educators, journalists, amateur filmmakers and/or ethnographic film enthusiasts. The seminar, which will focus on filmic portraits, will be conducted by Silas Michalakas, Christos Varvantakis, and Konstantinos Aivaliotis. The main aim is to familiarize the participants with the codes and tools of visual anthropology, as well as provide them with the opportunity to produce their own ethnographic short films. The seminar will take place in the Fårö Creative Learning, starting on Friday, May 5th. It will consist of a theoretical introduction to ethnographic cinema, screenings and the production of the short films. The technical equipment is sponsored by Canon.
