EthnoKino is an ethnographic and documentary film programme run by a collective of students and Bernese anthropologists. Founded in 2017 at the University of Bern, we have since curated a regular programme of over 50 screenings with Q&As and other film-related events in our Reitschule home cinema. Our aim is to bring aspects of ethnographic filmmaking to a wider audience, with themes ranging from human labour, political activism, spirit possession and much more. More than just "documenting the real", visual anthropology makes full use of the possibilities of the film medium - sometimes experimentally - in search of expressions of life from different cultural and political contexts around the world. Over the years, we have hosted many internationally acclaimed filmmakers and created a transformative space for dialogue at the intersections of scholarship, cinema and society.
