Call for audiovisual works: SIEF 2021

The Society for International Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF) invites audio/visual submissions to be screened or presented during its 15th Congress, which will be held online from the 21st to the 24th of June 2021.

The theme of the Conference is “Breaking the Rules: Power, Participation, Transgression”. This broad, engaged theme encourages new forms of attention and ways of thinking, whether it implies de-colonial modes of representation, or takes power, participation and transgression as its point of focus. For the audio/visual programme, SIEF encourages submissions that play with the rules of image and sound production, calling also for hybrid forms of authorship, defamiliarised formats of presentation and countered hierarchies of production. Ethnologists, folklorists, cultural and social anthropologists, and representatives of related disciplines (e.g. urban planning, architecture, design) and institutions (museums, archives, etc.), as well as filmmakers and other artists (e.g., photographers, sound designers) are encouraged to submit films, photographs, audio works, digital installations and other web-based or digital formats.

To make a submission, please fill in the SIEF online submission form before the 1st of February.
