Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade, 13–16 October 2020


The 29th International Festival of Ethnological film will take place between October 13 and 16 2020, during which over forty films in two main categories will be screened – the competitive category, consisting of the main competition program (24 films) and the student program (4 films), as well as the non-competitive category (12 films). The festival also includes a special program, which will be an opportunity to show a selection of films by recently departed director and long-term IFEF collaborator Dobrivoje Pantelić, TV programs commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Scientific Program of Radio Televsion Serbia (formerly Television Beograd), as well as other interesting material.

This year slogan “Beyond the Mounts, Beyond the Waters…” is part of a magic formula used to drive away the evil forces embodied in weather disasters currently descending on a village (according to beliefs in Northwestern Serbia). In today’s context, and through our Festival, we would like to drive away not only inclement weather, but all other evil forces currently descending upon us, and also provide a window into other worlds through a large number of interesting films.


The films will be available for viewing free of charge in the duration of one week after the beginning of the Festival, that is from 13 to 19 October.


All films have English subtitles. The films from main competition program are subtitled in Serbian. In order for Serbian subtitles to be included, it is necessary to select this option by clicking the CC button in the lower right corner of the window.


Due to Geoblocking, only viewers from the Republic of Serbia will be able to see the films.


It will be necessary for viewers to create an account on our screening platform, which will be reachable through links available on the pages for specific films on this website.
