The Festival Jean Rouch, previously known as Bilan du FIlm Ethnographique, was created in March 1982 by anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Rouch.

Over the past thirty five years, the Festival’s aim has been to showcase the most innovative and relevant trends in ethnographic film-making, visual anthropology, and to promote dialogue between cultures.

The Festival selects films that document and explore human societies and cultures in their many facets, such as social and cultural diversity, continuity and change, cultural transmission, relationship to the environment…

We welcome submissions of documentary films made by anthropologists, students, and professional filmmakers. We welcome all forms and styles of film-making, without restriction to theme and length.

Organized by the Comité du Film Ethnographique, this international film festival is held in Paris (France). Each year, it brings together filmmakers, academics, students and producers, in an attempt to promote discussions and debates amongst ethnographic film practitioners and their many publics, and to favor the diffusion and the distribution of the films.
