NAFA (The Nordic Anthropological Film Association), The Museum of Jón Sigurðsson, The University Centre of West fjords, Edinborgarhúsið (a cultural centre in Ísafjörður) and Roots (a non- governmental organisation for multicultural society), will hold an international documentary film festival and a conference at Ísafjördur in the West fjords of Iceland, in association with University of Iceland and The Icelandic Anthropology Association. The focus of this year's festival will be on how people from many different parts of the world manage to overcome various difficulties (i.e. breaking barriers) in their daily lives. The films will therefore, explore the many different changes and dynamics that locally and globally are happening in remote areas in the world today. Breaking the barriers in this sense refers to the barriers that exit between and within cultures. However, changes and dynamics are not only taking place in various regions of the planet, but also between various academic disciplines. Therefore, several films will be shown where the filmmakers deliberately mix anthropology and art together, anthropology and history (or archaeology, geography, technology) in order to explore the world in a new and experimental way. The films will be selected by a NAFA selection committee (being established in January 2008) in consultation with the Icelandic organisers. In addition to the film festival, where the films will be screened in the afternoons and evenings each day of the festival, there will be a conference with lectures each morning with national and foreign lecturers. International speakers who have confirmed their participation by the end of December 2007 include Jay Ruby, Asen Balikci, Rossella Ragazzi, and Sarah Pink. In addition, filmmakers and speakers are being specially invited from developing countries.
