SIEFF 2010
SIEFF - Sardinia International Ethnographic Film Festival
XV International Ethnographic Film Festival
NUORO, 20-25 September 2010

Deadline: 31 May 2010

Submissions for the 15th International Ethnographic Film Festival (SIEFF 2010) are now closed.
From the 20th to 25th September the Sardinian International Ethnographic Film Festival (SIEFF), will be held in Nuoro. This festival is organised by the Istituto Superiore Etnografico of Sardinia.
The Festival, which is a biennial event, has always adopted a specific theme: "The Shepherd and His Image" (1982); "The World Upside Down or Carnival and Controlled Transgression" (1984); "The Wedding. Marriage Rituals in Traditional Societies" (1986); "Women and Work in Traditional Societies" (1988); "Islands" (1990); "Mountains" (1992); "Men and Rivers" (1994); "Magic and Medicine in Traditional Societies" (1996); "Music and Rituals" (1998); "Children" (2000); "Food" (2002); "Tourism/Tourisms" (2004).
Since the 2006 edition the Festival has changed its previously traditional characteristic of focusing on a single theme, concentrating its programme instead on a selection of recently made documentary films with an ethno-anthropological prospective, special attention being given to those works principally concerned with themes that inevitably bring us back to the representation of contemporary life.
This year the Festival intends to focus its interests particularly on the production and circulation of folk music globally.
The works chosen for the official programme of the Festival will compete for the following awards:
A. "Grazia Deledda" Prize for the Best Film;
B. Prize for Best Film, set and produced in a Mediterranean country;
C. Prize for Best Film by a Sardinian director;
D. Prize for Most Innovative Film.
Apart from films in competition the Festival will also present films out of competition.
The films will be accompanied by a brief presentation and, as a general rule, commented on and discussed with their directors.
The projections, talks, conferences and discussions will be served by simultaneous translations in Italian and English.
