June 8-14, 2009
Tropentheater Amsterdam / Center for World Cultures Zuiderpershuis Antwerp
Announcement and Call for Films
BEELD VOOR BEELD is a documentary film festival dealing with cultural diversity. In 2009, we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary. Rooted in visual anthropology, the festival screens documentaries on various (sub-)cultures in a format combining screenings, discussions and seminars on different themes. It offers a meeting place for filmmakers and audiences from different cultural backgrounds. All filmmakers will be present, and much attention is paid to the discussions between them and the audience.
Entry submission is open to every production that either deals with subjects of anthropology, sociology and social issues or fits in with the overall theme. So films that do not fit in with the overall theme can also be submitted.
A special program of student films will be part of the festival. The section on student films is open to all educational programs on visual anthropology or documentary filmmaking fitting in with the overall format of the festival.
Apart from general film screenings, the 20th edition will have as one of its themes:
(World) Music on Film
We will be focusing on documentaries that put (world) music in a social and cultural context. Special attention will be given to films dealing with the changes within different types of music as a result of the intermingling of cultures and musical styles.
Submission deadline: Friday January 9, 2009
