9th RFAF Competition (short-list)



Third Student Festival of Anthropological Film «CinemAnthrop»

will take place on the July 7-10, 2015 in Ekaterinburg


Anthropological films are the films about peoples and cultures, religions and rituals, friends and enemies; about the meaning of ‘I’ and ‘we’; about the national character and the cultural heritage. This is the cinematographic study of Man in his awareness of himself. The anthropological film is the combination of the magic of cinematographic expression and the scientific knowledge.


  • CinemAnthrop is the festival for students interested in anthropological film-making.
  • CinemAnthrop is the younger brother of RFAF (Russian Festival of Anthropological Film).
  • CinemAnthrop is an open, i.e. international, film festival where students from all countries present their films.
  • CinemAnthrop is the festival of youth, it is organized by students of the Ural Federal University.

The programme of the festival will include the documentaries (competitive program) short films on anthropological themes by both Russian and foreign students made in 2012–2015. The length of a film is limited up to 20 minutes.

CinemAnthrop will take place back to back with RFAF and parallel of XI Congress of Anthropologists and Ethnologists of Russia (July 7–10, 2015). The main idea is to make a bridge between senior professionals and young amateurs, future professionals. Participants of the professional competition will evaluate the student works; and participants of the student competition will join discussions on professional works.

The decisions on the Festival Awards will be made by a professional jury, the sponsors and the audience of the festival.

The deadline for the submission of applications for participation in the anthropological films competition is March 1, 2015.

The final of competition will take place on the July 8, 2015.
