The FIFEQ-MTL is looking for student and professional volunteers to participate in the screening committee for the festival films to be programmed for the 19th edition to be held in May 2023.
A place of exchange and dissemination, the festival celebrates ethnographic cinema and visual anthropology while stimulating debate and reflection on the ethics and relevance of the use of visual media in the study of cultures and societies.
Free to the public, the FIFEQ-MTL has been organizing screenings, master classes, round tables and question-and-answer sessions for several years in major cultural venues such as the Cinémathèque Québécoise, the Cinéma Moderne and the McCord Museum.

The official selection presents some forty films from all over the world, giving pride of place to Indigenous, Canadian, Quebec and non-Western film productions. The programming committee wishes to decolonize the gaze and promote an anthropology and a cinema of the close and even of the “ordinary”.
Cinephiles, passionate about anthropology and sociology or curious about social sciences and cinema, join us to discover the workings of the organization of an international festival dedicated to ethnographic film, entirely on a voluntary basis.
We eagerly await your questions and applications at the following address: ethnographik@gmail.com
You may send:

  • A cover letter that explains the reasons for your wish to be involved directly in the body of the email
  • A brief summary of your background and experiences: CV or resumé in PDF or word format.

Take part in #FIFEQ Montreal 2023!

In a few words

The International Festival of Ethnographic Films of Quebec (FIFEQ) was founded in 2003 by visual anthropology students at Université de Montréal. A free and unique festival, it is one of the rare platforms to screen and promote ethnographic cinema in Canada. Thanks to the generous implication of hundreds of students from Concordia University, McGill University, Université de Montréal and of non-student professionals, the Festival has brought together thousands of viewers, all passionate about cinema, visual anthropology or simply curious about discovering hidden gems of the ethnographic repertoire.

The FIFEQ is a free festival that comes to life every year thanks to the generosity of our partners and cultural subsidies. Would you like to support us?
