Man, Skill, Heritage
The mission continues. With camera as an intermediary, our concerned eye is searching for identity and means to defend it in this era in which defacement has reached horrifying proportions. We know about wounds, we are searching for ointment. We know about abysses, we are becoming a bridge. Creators, researchers and image maestros from about twenty countries gathered and by doing so they already significantly shifted the borders, both visible and invisible. Because the world in which such people exist is not without hope

For this years’, twenty second, edition of the Festival, as many as 115 films applied, which is a record. The selection committee selected 13 foreign and four local films in the official program, as many for the information program, as well as eight films in student competition. Based on their subject matters, social and political films were dominant, then psychological and physical anthropology, social involvement of specific groups and fitting into normal life. Questions of human life and its duration, as well as stories contemplating life experiences, were also represented.

Realizing the significance of film in preservation of intangible heritage, a round table was organized on documenting crafts in Southeast Europe. It was organized by the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade, in cooperation with the Sofia Regional Centre for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in South-Eastern Europe and UNESCO’s Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe from Venice. Experiences and opinions were voiced by experts in the field of visual anthropology and intangible heritage of Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Italy, Belgium and China.
The conclusion of the roundtable was that the film can significantly contribute to the protection of intangible cultural heritage by documenting the live cultural heritage, such as customs, crafts, traditions... In addition to this, and given the nature and properties of the film medium, the film can interpret the heritage in many different ways. It is essential that a significant number of ethnologists and anthropologists get involved in these projects, as well as other experts, because the preservation of intangible heritage is fundamentally an interdisciplinary endeavor. The film medium certainly has its place in society and it should be brought closer to the local community, and members of that local community should be motivated to record their reality themselves.
