"Film is about the expression and representation of the everyday lives of ordinary people and communities, both near and far. By watching and sharing time with other cultures on screen, and experiencing other peoples’ lives, we gain intimate access beyond our own daily life and world view."
I think this is a 'must attend' event even for those hard-core qualitative types who have never really 'got' ethnographic research. It will be a momentous biennial gathering of the ethnographic filmmaking community... take a look here. Mike Yorke, the festival chairman, left a comment saying: "For commercial ethnographers and researchers this will get you minds burning. I have no doubt that the ethical issues will be full frontal. It is time we all came clean on the issues at stake. And for those of you interested in anthro/ethno film on TV, this will be centre stage. Look at the Programme page; we have a great selection of movies this year. And pleaase register online now to get it cheap. Best wishes, MIKE YORKE, Festival Chairman."
The cost, if you book before mid May, will be around £50. See you all in, Leeds, UK in July!
