Biennial Conference of the Finnish Anthropological Society 2015 Landscapes, Sociality, & Materiality
Helsinki, October 21–22, 2015


The Finnish Anthropological Society invites documentary film submissions to be screened during its Biennial Conference in Helsinki from the 21st to the 22nd October 2015. The theme of the conference is Landscapes, Sociality, & Materiality.
The Film Programme aims to investigate different ways in which objects, landscapes, material properties of various resources, infrastructures, and environments enable and restrict certain forms of creativity.
We encourage submissions that consider – through their cinematic form or content – different perceptions, mediations, and constructions of landscape and its relation to time, place, space, belonging, memories, cosmologies, narratives, and being-in-the-world. We also welcome submissions that engage with the multiple affects and relations that are generated and mediated through material objects.

Two options to submit:
1. Online submissions- Send an email to Carlo Cubero ( with a link to the film (ie. VIMEO, YouTube, or your preffered format), a short billing (250 words), and the following: Director Runtime in minutes Year of production Location Production/distribution

Cubero & Enrico Barone Department Social & Cultural Anthropology Tallinn University 5 Uus Sadama 10120 Tallinn, Estonia Further Particulars: Please include the completed FORM (see attached for WORD or PDF ) with your submission.
