Ethnocineca 2017

In its eleventh edition in 2017, ethnocineca once again unites international documentary cinema in Vienna. And again this year we are happy to announce a couple of improvements to the program: Together with the audience and numerous international filmmakers as well as guests from the field of the arts and science, the festival celebrates – with an additional seventh day – the great variety of contemporary documentary film and ethnographic film in particular.

Our main program and the five award sections contain 54 films altogether. The winners of the three awards IDA, EVA and ADA will be selected by our much-appreciated juries, while the audience decides on the best film in the program for our up-and-coming filmmakers, the ethnocineca Student Shorts Award (ESSA). We are particularly looking forward to our newly established International Shorts Award (ISA), the winner of which will also be selected by the audience. In this year’s comprehensive side program, which contains the annual keynote lecture, a panel discussion, a masterclass and several film-discussions, we invite the audience to join a deepening form of debate about documentary film and especially about this year’s festival focus, Radical Minds.

We wish you an inspiring festival!
