Via SOCIOLOGY OF ISLAM LISTSERV on February 24, 2014:

We are pleased to announce the first Ethnographic Film and Media Program of the Middle East and Central Eurasia, which will be held annually in conjunction with the Anthropology of the Middle East and Central Eurasia Network of the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA).

The deadline is  April 30, 2014.

The goal of our program is to promote original ethnographic films and visual media not only in the area of anthropology but also in sociology, folklore, religion, material culture and related topics. Our program encompasses all areas of the contemporary Middle East and Central Eurasia (Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, China), including topics on minority groups and religious themes.

Our first program will be held during the 13th EASA Biennial Conference, at Tallinn University, Estonia, between 31 July and 3 August 2014. We invite and encourage all students, anthropologists, documentary filmmakers and media artists to participate in our program by submitting ethnographic videos, films (including online and cell phone styles, short and feature-length films) as well as interactive media (websites, hyperlinked documents, etc.).

Films and other materials submitted for the program should be sent online or as DVD preview copies, accompanied by a synopsis, a 10-line description and technical data no later than 30 April 2014.
