The daily schedule of films.

April in Paris! Ethnografilm features Q&A after each session and free tours of the historic Montmartre district.  Over 90% of the directors whose films were selected will be in attendance.

Directors note that all non-fiction films (earliest release date Jan. 2009) are eligible for the 2016 festival.   “Ethnographic” films are not simply about far away people and places.  We particularly solicit movies about modern life  as well as remote corners of the planet!

Submit before August 31, 2015 for reduced rates at Withoutabox!  Filmmakers please note that Withoutabox (WAB) now allows free submission of screeners (uploaded to IMDb).  If you would rather use a Vimeo link, add it to your film Synopsis in WAB.  Do not send a DVD.

Since the beginning of modern cinema, viewers and critics alike have been transfixed by light contrasted with darkness. We celebrate the 2015 International Year of Light with this salute to film noir.
