Ethnografilm 2017

Ethnografilm 2017 Web Program

Film Screenings 11-15 April 2017

Preliminary Schedule below.

Films will run from 11am on April 12th until midnight on April 15th, 2017.

After last year’s festival, our 3rd Ethnografilm Africa was held in June (Nairobi, Kenya), followed by the 3rd Ethnografilm Asia in July (Trivandrum, Kerala) and Ethnografilm Europe (Barcelona).  2017 festival selections will be shown at our traveling festival in India, Kenya, Louisiana, and Boston.

Our opening reception, on the evening of the 11th, will be the best ever!  Buswell & Nyberg’s Paris Music Challenge – Shaun Buswell & Erik Nyberg will be coming from London & Gothenburg to Paris on 1st April, with no musicians and no music. In ten days, speaking only French, they aim to form a 10 piece band made up entirely from musicians they bump into randomly, and then write an original set of music to be performed by this collection of folks who were previously unknown to each other — at our reception. Oh, and they can’t speak French! Pretty wild.
