RAI Film Festival

The RAI Film Festival celebrates of the best in ethnographic, anthropological and archaeological filmmaking from around the globe.

The film screenings are accompanied by workshops, masterclasses, and a conference.

In March 2019 we held the 16th edition of the Festival in Bristol (UK). We screened over 60 films, held a major conference and welcomed more than 120 filmmakers and speakers. Read about the award winning films here.

The RAI Film Festival will return to Watershed cinema in Bristol for its 17th edition 25-28 March 2021. We are now accepting film submissions via FilmFreeway. Check back here for announcements about the next Film Festival Conference and for programme previews.
