The ETHNOCINECA - Ethnographic and Documentary Filmfest Vienna - is a unique film festival in the city of Vienna which is dedicated to anthropological themes and topics.
The ETHNOCINECA intends to provide a platform for all media-artists and filmmakers, who concentrate on anthropological issues like home, otherness, migration, oppression, liberation, poverty etc. to introduce their works to a broader audience. A public discussion about the visually presented issues shall be stimulated and facilitated.
The program of ETHNOCINECA comprises two categories: the regular program and the ETHNOCINECA Student Shorts Competition. Submissions are allowed only in either one of the two categories.
Selection Media Type: Digital copies are preferred and can be submitted via a download link or a link to an online screener. In exceptional cases we offer an upload of the film on our FTP server. If a digital film version is not available, two DVDs/Blu-rays of the film can be submitted by postal mail.
