    • The German (Göttingen) International Ethnographic Film Festival promotes documentary cinema with a special emphasis on new films, videos or interactive media (published after 1.1.2015) dealing with socio-cultural processes in a wide sense of the term.

      The festival is open to all filmmakers, but especially those coming from anthropology, sociology, folklore and neighbouring disciplines. It provides a great opportunity for international co-operation in Visual Anthropology and documentary filmmaking.

      It encourages young filmmakers to submit their films, as the festival specially supports STUDENT FILMS and awards the best production with the Student Film Award.

      The festival addresses film authors, producers, distributors, and viewers.  It aims for discussions at the screenings and afterwards between the various groups present to promote the intercultural dialogue on the different aspects of film work. Also it is a meeting point of young students of anthropology, sociology and media studies, who are interested in the use of film as research method, mode of publishing and communicating research results.
