Bremen Days of Ethnografic Film 2023

Tuesday 24.1. - Thursday 26.1.

For the eleventh time the Department of Anthropology and Cultural Research at Uni Bremen is inviting you to join the Bremen Days of Ethnographic Film - this year with 15 contemporary international filmscreenings. The event is organised by students of the Cultural Studies programme and is aimed not only at a professional audience, but also at the general public.

The films selected by the students use different narrative strategies and document a wide range of cultural and social phenomena from around the world. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the film screenings take place on the campus of the University of Bremen. Thursday evening is the culmination and conclusion of the Ethnographic Film Days. Culture enthusiasts from Bremen are then invited to Kino City 46 for stories on the subject of migration.

Highlights from three days of Filmfest
To kick off on Tuesday evening (24 January), the Filmfest will feature works by students. These include refugees from Ukraine and the daily lives of inland waterway boaters. A film by two Bremen students creates queer-feminist utopias together with the protagonists.
On Wednesday, January 25th. it is about the decolonization of museums and archives.
Closing on Thursday, January 26th. the Ethnographic Film Days will be a guest at Kino City 46 with the focus on migration. The film “Dea” tells the story of an Indonesian migrant worker in Hong Kong in an ethnofiction format. “Unwritten Letters” is filmed in collaboration with a refugee from Syria and tells the story of his arrival in Europe.

Hybrid event – numerous filmmakers on site
Although the Ethnographic Film Days 2023 will be held in hybrid mode for the second time, many of the filmmakers will come to Bremen to answer questions from the audience – more guests will be available online for discussions.

Guests who are unable to attend in person can also participate online via Zoom. The link will be made available at short notice via the website: blogs. uni-bremen. de/ethnofilmtage/
