From the 22nd to the 27th September the Sardinia International Ethnographic Film Festival (SIEFF), will be held in Nuoro, Italy. SIEFF 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 perspective, special attention being given to those works principally concerned with themes that bring us back to the representation of contemporary life.

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 in Visual Anthropology.

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.

To participate in the selection it is necessary to fill in and transmit on line the entry form available in this site.
The entry form should be printed, signed and sent to the following address: SIEFF 2014, Istituto Superiore Regionale Etnografico, Via Papandrea, 6 - 08100 Nuoro (Italy).
