“We live in a world of moving images and to communicate our ideas we need to be as fluent in the use of sound and imagery as in the printed or the spoken word”.
(Michael Yorke)

Course Directors: Vlad Naumescu, CEU, Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Budapest, Hungary
Michael Yorke, University College London, Department of Anthropology, UK

Core Faculty: Ben Pollard, InSight – Center for theory and practice of film
Michael Stewart, University College London, Department of Anthropology, UK

Recent years have witnessed a growing interest in anthropological filmmaking in the academia. The visual has become a primary tool for teaching, documenting, analyzing social phenomena but also communicating and engaging with broader audiences. This course enables researchers to use film more consciously and creatively in order to gain a new perspective in their approach to the world and learn to convey their ideas in a new language.

The course provides a state-of-the-art training for social scientists interested in filmmaking. It focuses on cross-cultural ethnographically informed filmmaking, combining an intensive three weeks training in practical filmmaking with discussions on history, genres, ethics and theories of visuality. Taught by academics and film professionals with expertise in visual anthropology and ethnographic filmmaking, the course combines a practical, hands-on camera training with a series of theoretical sessions and masterclasses.

Target Audience
Applications are invited from graduate students, young researchers and junior faculty in anthropology/sociology and connected fields interested in using film in their research and teaching. Undergraduates without a university degree will not be considered.
