The NAFA family

One of NAFA`s most important tasks has been to build up an anthropological film collection; for use in teaching and research; a unique collection of classic and more recent ethnographic films, which is matched only by a few of the world’s most important and largest ethnographic film collections.

In 2017, NAFA has launched the Journal of Anthropological Film (JAF), a peer-reviewed journal that publishes films that stand alone as original, empirical contributions based on social anthropological research.
