Festival Venue | Local do FestivaL


Museu de Etnologia - Lisbon, Restelo

[EN] Situated above the Belém, one of Lisbon's most visited area, with a wide view of the Tagus River, the Museu Nacional de Etnologia is a space directly linked to the history of anthropology and ethnography in Portugal. Its semi-peripheral condition towards the city centre, combined with the kind of atmosphere that its 1970s building and auditorium provide, has made this museum a recurrent host to some of the most important debates around anthropology, film and art. We want this legacy to be passed on to yet another NAFA festival, whose main ethos is to put the quality of the encounter and discussion about film and ethnography first and foremost.

Belém will be the area of choice for gatherings and excursions outside the museum sessions. Belém contains several green spaces such as museums, parks and gardens, and has an attractive riverside environment with cafés, restaurants, shops and a public promenade. The Tagus has inspired and continues to inspire visitors. We want to take advantage of the landscape and the river to best welcome NAFA's 20|21 participants.


[PT] Situado acima da zona de Belém, uma das mais visitadas de Lisboa, com uma ampla vista sobre o rio Tejo, o Museu Nacional de Etnologia é um espaço directamente ligado à história da antropologia e da etnografia em Portugal. A sua condição semi-periférica face ao centro da cidade, aliada ao tipo de ambiente que o seu edifício e auditório dos anos 70 proporcionam, tem feito deste museu um recorrente anfitrião de alguns dos mais importantes debates em torno da antropologia, cinema e arte. Queremos que este legado seja transmitido a mais um festival NAFA, cujo principal lema é colocar a qualidade do encontro e da discussão sobre cinema e etnografia em primeiro lugar.

Belém será a zona de eleição para encontros e passeios fora das sessões no museu. Belém contém vários espaços verdejantes como museus, parques e jardins, possuindo um atraente ambiente ribeirinho com cafés, restaurantes, lojas e um passeio público. O Tejo inspirou e continua a inspirar os visitantes. Queremos tirar proveito da paisagem e do rio para acolher da melhor forma os participantes no NAFA 20|21.

Past Events

Conference - "Visual Anthropology in Portugal, an overview"

Catarina Alves Costa (CRIA NOVA FCSH), Teresa Fradique (CRIA NOVA FCSH/ESAD.CR IPLeiria)

6 March @ UiT | SVHUM, Tromsø, Norway

Starting with a presentation about the work developed by the group in visual anthropology and the arts (NAVA) and recent experiences done in our Audiovisual Laboratory, the conference intends to reflect on a contrast between current visual anthropology in Portugal approach and the nostalgic ethnographic gaze on Portuguese author cinema.

The core of the conference is based on the analysis of different modes of representation in Portuguese ethnographic cinema: the ethnographic archives from the 1960’s produced by the Gottingen institute; the documentary film about rural and fishing communities that tries to represent an idea of interiority; the ethno-fiction or poetic ethnographic cinema and finally, the revolutionary cinema of the mid to late 70’s.

The conference will end with the example on how a generation of anthropologists from the 1990’s tried to create an ethnographic cinema that was much more interested in how these communities wanted to be represented. The film made in 2019 “A Ramadan in Lisbon” is used as a possible example of that tendency.

Workshop - "A Journey to the Makonde, work in progress - presentation of video material and discussion"

Catarina Alves Costa (CRIA NOVA FCSH)

5 March @ UiT | Teorifagbygget, Tromsø, Norway

Professor Catarina Alves Costa (NOVA Universidade Lisboa) will discuss her work about the use of film archives using the project A Journey to the Makonde: a journey to Mozambique in the search of a hidden story with an experimental use of film archives and a subjective narration.

"In the film, I travel to Maputo to meet the Makonde ethnic group living in the city. With me, the films and photographs made by Margot Dias, an ethnologist who filmed between 1958 and 1961 among the Makonde people in North Mozambique, a former Portuguese colony until 1975. An inward journey that will gradually untie the circumstances in which these original films were made.” - Catarina Alves Costa

Conference - “Ethnographic films in the nordic countries”

Prof. Peter Crawford (UiT - The Artic University of Norway)

18 November @ NOVA FCSH, Lisboa

While one may conclude that several battles have been won, and that visual anthropology and ethnographic film are firmly established as permissible research components, the time may have come to raise more awkward issues, concerning challenges and compatibilities when using film in producing ethnography, and the relationship between the world of narrative cinema, art and anthropology. The talk will be accompanied by screenings of film clips or films.

Peter I. Crawford is an anthropologist, publisher and filmmaker. He has been an active member of NAFA since the late 1970s. Currently he is professor of visual anthropology and head of the master of visual anthropology programme (MVA) at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. He has written extensively on visual anthropology and ethnographic filmmaking and has wide experience in teaching the subject both theoretically and practically.
