Ethnographic and Anthropological Cinema Festival


OKO – festival of Ethnographic and Anthropological Cinema


OKO – is a festival that unites filmmakers with people. It is a holiday of ethnographic, anthropological documentary and other types of films. It is a place where you can see and feel the heartbeat of small and large peoples, communities, villagers and citizens. At the same time, it is also a platform where filmmakers, folklorists and ethnographers can meet and find out more about each other, share their ideas and, possibly, arrange future mutual projects. It is the reason why the festival will be informal. There will be no red carpets; nevertheless there will be awards and prizes.
