Years running: 32 (since 1990)


International Documentary Film Festival on anthropology, culture and politic.


Cineblend Festival is the new name for the Beeld voor Beeld festival. It is a yearly documentary film festival focusing on issues of cultural diversity. Rooted in visual anthropology, the festival screens documentaries on various (sub-)cultures offering discussions and seminars. The festival serves as a meeting place for filmmakers and audiences from different cultural backgrounds. All filmmakers will be present, and much attention is given to discussions between them and the audience. A special part of the program is devoted to student films and is open to students from all educational programs on visual anthropology or documentary filmmaking.

Entry is open to any production that either deals with subjects of anthropology, sociology and social issues or fits the overall theme.

This years’ overall theme will be: Inclusion and Exclusion.

According to many analysts, thinkers and media it is the most important political issue of the 21st century: who belongs and who doesn’t? Cultural identity and nationalism go hand in hand in defining who is included and who is excluded. We will screen films that show processes of inclusion and exclusion. In the second week of the festival we will together with the Amsterdam Roots Festival, focus on documentaries on Music and Migration. What role does music play in stressing and maintaining group – and cultural identities – especially in migrant settings?
