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.

Antropofest 2017 In the Municipality of Yahualica, Hidalgo, a Nahua community from Mexico, the archaeological pieces (named stone gods in their language) have the ability to make the population sick. Through an accurate knowledge the inhabitants of the municipality manage to deal with the power of the 'stone gods' in order to prevent possible damages and to benefit from the relationship with them. This facet of their reality has been seriously criticised by the Mexican media and the community has been deprived of a large part of their material heritage. This documentary pictures the life of the Nahuas from Yahualica, who have to coexist with the world of the stones, who make them sick, and with the world of the mestizos, who ridicule and rob them.

Jaime Bernardo Díaz is an anthropologist; Ana Somohano Eres and Antonio Jaramillo Arango are both historians. The three of them studying their PhDs at the UNAM, México, where they research about the social life objects can have in native communities dating before and after the Conquest.

Antropofest 2017 Viktor Valerevich Mumikhotkak also known as „Mukha", Yupik Eskimo from the hamlet New Chaplino (Chukotka, Russia), died tragically in 2012. Somebody stabbed him in his abdomen and cut off his fingers. In 2014, when young Alla Ukuma gave birth to her first son, her mother told her: „Last night I saw Mukha in my dream. He had come back in your boy. Let us name your baby Viktor". According to the local people, the dead can return to the realm of the living up to five times. This film essay on life, death and possible return poses the universal question: How do you confront your own end?

Jaroslava Panáková received her PhD in Social Anthropology at St. Petersburg State University in Russia and MA in documentary cinema at FAMU Prague, Czech Republic. Since 2001 she has been studying indigenous peoples of Polar Russia. She combines her fieldwork with the filmic approach. Author's short film "The seagull flying against the wind" (2005) was screened at the IFF in Jihlava and at the festival Oneworld. Her medium-length film "Being tourist at home" (2009) participated in 2009 at the East Silver market in Jihlava and in 2010, won the first Prize at the TOCOCU festival in Lisboa.
