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.

We are looking forward to you!

Set in the highlands village of Katuwo, the film is an intimate portrait of the day-to-day life of a family living in an agro-pastoralist farm in Namibe, Angola. Through the filmmaker's request to her host Madukilaxi to put her skills into the making of a doll, the film addresses a twofold notion of labour taking place in the dry season: their shared doll-crafting and making a living. Lipuleni, Madukilaxi's toddler, follows their twofold labour, and the three of them celebrate their efforts with a feast.

What roads did the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympic Games pave for Brazil? Along three years of navigating through the daily lives of three Brazilians, one indigenous, one African and one European descendant, the documentary We must be dreaming explores what the World Cup and the Olympic Games have brought to the lives of the people of Rio de Janeiro and to what degree the biggest sport events of the planet have brought the dreams and opportunities they promise.
David Bert Joris Dhert is a Belgian documentary filmmaker working in the field of visual anthropology. Since 2010 he lives between Belgium and Brazil, where he has realized a film about the changes the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games brought to the lives of his Rio co-citizens. His work has been invited for documentary film festivals, ethnographic film festivals as well as for exhibitions for contemporary art.

The film takes a look at the border between Israel and Syria, through the experience of the Druze community - living in the occupied Golan Heights, of Syrian identity yet in an Israeli reality, and subject to the whims of the region's geopolitics. In the Occupation's 50th year, and with the Syrian Civil War raging, questions arise on the Golan and its Druze community's identities.
Simon Luling is a US American and German filmmaker, based in France. He has also lived in Canada, the Netherlands, the US, Ecuador and Israel, working primarily as a film/video editor and producer, and occasionally in academic research. Previous work includes Freeway: Crack in the System (documentary about the US drug epidemic and Nicaragua's Contra War), and award-winning South American comedy series, Enchufe.tv. His interest in politics and world cultures (namely in the context of state and nation-building) led him to spend time in the Golan Heights, befriending people in the Druze villages, out of which the film Borderline Views was born.
