videos or interactive media dealing with anthropology, sociology and cultural studies in a wide sense of the term. The festival provides an opportunity for international co-operation in this
field with special emphasis on bridging East and West, for an exchange of such media and for seeking ways of their broader use. The festival is meant to be a chance for authors, owners and
distributors, but also for users to exchange their views at the screenings and following discussions, as well as at additional specialized events which may be an integral part of the festival. One of these events will be a Student Competition with a prize awarded to the best student film.
