First International Showcase of Ethnographic and Documentary Film in Puerto Rico

First International Showcase of Ethnographic and Documentary Film in Puerto Rico
21 – 24 April 2009

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology of the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) and the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón will celebrate its First International Showcase of Ethnographic and Documentary Film in Puerto Rico from the 21st to the 24th of April 2009 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. During four days, the two sponsoring institutions will become a space to celebrate, discuss and share ideas about the visual medium and its potential to develop new forms of knowledge and new expressions from the perspective of the humanities and cultural studies.

We are interested in receiving submissions of documentaries from all over the world that address cultural and ethnographic issues (understood in its broadest sense). Our program will highlight entries that reflect an intimate encounter with the context which they represent and that are committed to a particular point of view as manifest through their cinematographic authorship. A jury, composed of members of the academic and artistic community of Puerto Rico, will offer prizes for the most outstanding submissions, including student films. Read More
