Antropofest is an international festival of movies with social anthropological themes.
Festival is held by eponymous NGO, formed by social anthropology graduates. The goal of the festival is to introduce the general audience to the movies that could also be one of the important study instruments of our domain. These specific documents will allow us to learn about the life of various human communities, social groups or individuals around the world.
During the festival we will hold debates on current projections and there will be also other accompanying programme.
We are looking forward to you!
We are pleasured that we can screen together with Festival of the Freedom these movies: Be Jam Be, Grab nad run and Across Gender. We screen in several high schools across whole Czech Republic.

The film invites us to follow the strange path taken by the Marquis de Wavrin, the first white man to film, at the end of the 1920s, the "head shrinking" Shuar Indians. Over 6000 meters of footage filmed between 1920 and 1938 led to his becoming a renowned explorer and ethnographer. Thanks to the safeguarding of this film heritage by the Cinémathèque (the Royal Belgian Film Archive), we are able to learn about the Marquis de Wavrin, defender and friend of the Indians of the Upper - Amazon, and a true filmmaker at heart.
After studying Art History and Social Anthropology at ULB, Grace Winter continued her studies at the Sorbonne for one year, obtaining a mandate from the CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research) to produce ethnological works in Mali and the Ivory Coast. In 1979, she joined the distribution company Progrès Films, and went on to become a director of the company for 18 years. In 2002, following the closure of Progrès Films, she returned to the Cinémathèque (the Royal Belgian Film Archive) as a researcher
Luc Plantier studied Language Sciences at the University of Avignon, then went on to complete a Masters in Cinema in Lyon. Moving on from theory to practice, he obtained a post-graduate qualification in editing from IAD (The Broadcasting Arts Institution) in Louvain-La-Neuve.

Séverine Enjolras, Magali Bragard
During a summer in Paris and its suburbs, two young directors attempt a remake of "Chroniques d'un été", fifty years after the cult film of Rouch and Morin. An offbeat portrait of nowday's youth, as a mirror image of the 1960s, while questions of the "cinéma vérité" are revisited with fancy.
Séverine Enjolras and Magali Bragard are both holders of a DEA in visual anthropology obtained in 2003 in Paris 10 - Nanterre, under the direction of Jean Rouch. In 2009 they co-directed a short documentary film, "Dombes", on the study and management of a health risk. They are both teachers in documentary cinema, they created and organized in 2007 and 2008 a festival of films in the West Bank. Séverine Enjolras has also directed several documentaries, institutional films and films around citizen consultation workshops. Magali Bragard, in addition to his work of realization, is also a stage and press photographer.

The film depicts the vanishing elements of traditional folk culture in Wallachia. A record of wood transportation on a sledge in the Beskydy mountains is a very valuable part of the film. The film also tells the story of a 96-year-old man who represents the vanishing "old" Wallachia while living in the current technological era.
Vít Smrčka, the film’s director, graduated in journalism and ethnography. He is the author of a film on hauling wood on sledge in the Krkonoše mountains and also published a book on the history of ethnography. The co-author and cinematographer of the film Aleš Smrčka is also an ethnographer.
