Presentation: The Study Group on Audiovisual Ethnomusicology welcomes scholars  and filmmakers to submit films of an ethnomusicological nature to be included in our 2018 meeting. We are interested 
in films made by and/or for ethnomusicologists, and particularly films that inform, and/or are 
informed by diverse ethnomusicological research methodologies. Understanding filmmaking as a 
valuable and multifaceted tool in the creation and dissemination of ethnomusicological 
knowledge, we hope to use our international symposium to showcase and spark dialogue about the many creative ways scholars are using this medium in research, outreach, and teaching. Although 
full-length ethnographic films are welcome (90 minutes max), we also welcome short films (no 
minimum length) or collections of short films (2-4 films) that dialogue with one another.

Guidelines & Submission Dates:
Maximum allowed length for films and documentaries is 90 minutes. Film abstracts
should include the hyperlink to the complete film to allow film committee to review the
work. Films can be easily password protected through websites such as Vimeo and
YouTube. If you need assistance with this please contact the film selection committee, we
would be happy to walk you through this process.

All film proposals should be submitted by the deadline (January 31st, 2018) to the e-mail
address ictm.ave.films@gmail.com. The email should clearly indicate the name of the
author/s and the title of the film. An attached Word or Openoffice file should contain the
abstract (max. 250 words). Multiple proposals of the same author are allowed only in
these cases: 1 paper + 1 film; 1 paper + 1 workshop.
