As we do not want to assume the gender identities of our filmmakers and therefore do not want to reproduce binary, outdated stereotypes, we invite all participants of the film festival to share the personal gender pronouns they use for themselves.
Our intention is to create a gender-inclusive environment, declare our solidarity and de-stigmatise the discourse around gender identity.
Having said this, we of course fully respect the wish not to share one’s personal pronouns as gender identity is a private piece of information. The decision of sharing one’s gender identity is fully up to everyone’s personal choice and by no means required or forced by the festival.
Association for the promotion of audio-visual culture
ethnocineca is organised as an association whose team has made it its mission to promote international documentary cinema in Austria and to strengthen the public accessibility of social science discourses through ethnographic film. The common passion for ethnographic and documentary film is the drive and reason why ethnocineca exists.
