Drawing in international film-makers, broadcasters, academics and a non-specialist audience, the RAI International Festival of Ethnographic Film is one of the leading global gatherings in the UK that celebrates critical film-making and discusses the relationships between film, visual culture, and the promotion of cultural diversity and inter-cultural dialogue. The festival includes film screenings, the awarding of film prizes, workshops and panel debates.
