30th International Festival of Ethnological Film will take place from October 4-8 2021 at the Ethnographic museum in Belgrade and Yugoslav Film Archive. 30 Films from around the world will compete for the Grand Prix "Dragoslav Antonijević" and other prizes, 6 student films for the Best Student Film award, and 21 additional  films will be screened in the non-competitive and special programs.

Entrance to all screenings is free of charge.

In the aim of preventing the spread of Covid-19, wearing face masks and keeping physical distance of 1,5m is obligatory in enclosed spaces. During screenings, it is necessary to maintain a one-seat distance.
The photo exhibition "Vanishing Cultures", by Arne Hodalič and Katja Bidovec from Slovenia, will officially open this year's Festival edition. The exhibition will present portaits of people from several communities, which are thought by anthropologists to be facing extinction. The authors have spent years visiting diverse areas in which such communities live in order to photograph the people on site. The portraits you will see show people who live on the banks of the river Omo near Turkana lake in Ethiopia, the areas of Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland in India, the north of Namibia, as well as the liberated territory of Western Sahara. The authors are well established photographers with a rich experience, which includes working for National Geographic Slovenia. The Festival and the exhibition will be formally opened in the hall of the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade on Monday, Oct 4, at 7 PM.
We kindly ask our visitors to keep to the prescribed measures for preventing the spread of Covid-19.
