Seventh Annual International Festival of Anthropology Films (2014): Seven Generations, respecting our past, looking to our future!

Call for submissions. Submissions are invited for the 7th annual film festival hosted by The Ethnographic Film Unit @ UBC. This year we honour our seventh edition of the festival and the efforts and intentions of Idle No More through our festival theme - Seven Generations- and with our call for films that stand proudly in history while looking to the future wellbeing of all peoples. We are particularly interested in films by Indigenous filmmakers, films framed by an Indigenous perspective, and films about Indigenous issues. We also seek films that are focused on making our world a better and more just place for all.

Submission deadline: January 15, 2014.
