SIEFF - Sardinia International Ethnographic Film Festival
XVI International Ethnographic Film Festival
NUORO, 15-23 September 2012

Deadline: 31 May 2012

From the 15th to 23th September the Sardinia International Ethnographic Film Festival (SIEFF), will be held in Nuoro, This Festival is organised by the Istituto Superiore Etnografico of Sardinia.
This edition, which marks the event's thirtieth anniversary, besides the competition with its usual four prizes, proposes a series of events dedicated to the manifestation’s history accompanied by the presence of the most important film makers who through the years have taken part in and illuminated the Festival.

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 prospective, special attention being given to those works principally concerned with themes that inevitably 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.

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.
