Workshop on Ethnographic Filmmaking

Lake District, 30 May – 2 June 2014

Durham University’s Residential Workshop on Ethnographic Filmmaking will take place in the Lake District from 30 May to 2 June 2014. Organised by the Department of Anthropology and financially supported by Arts and Humanities Research Council, the workshop aims to introduce the history, theory and practice of ethnographic film to Durham University-based postgraduate researchers of anthropology and AHRC-related disciplines who are interested in ethnographic research and audio-visual media.

In an intensive 4-day practical and theoretical training, participants will get acquainted with key concepts of ethnographic film language. They will gain understanding and basic skills in various audio-visual techniques for ethnographic filmmaking and develop confidence in using the medium of film for research purposes regardless of limited financial and technical resources.

The main emphasis of the training will be placed on creating short ethnographic films in a small group setting following established practices of film production. The practical challenge will be preceded by a series of introductory sessions that will focus on the history and theory of ethnographic film language as well as the basics of handling audio-visual equipment and journalism.

Meals, accommodation and transportation will be covered for all selected participants.

If you are interested in participating, please read the open call and fill in the online application form by Friday, 25 April 2014.

For any additional information contact Dr Alex Flynn or Pina Sadar.
