he Perspectives on Pastoralism Film Festival will deepen understanding of how diverse peoples across the world gain their livelihoods from extensive livestock production.
The relationships of pastoralist people and animals and their food production systems reflect an intimate intertwining of culture, economy and ecology in harsh environments such as drylands and mountainous regions. In such environments, mobility of animals plays a key role.
Films of multiple genres – spanning documentary, narrative and experimental – made by pastoralists and/or about pastoralists offer different insights into issues important to pastoralists.
This film festival opens the possibility for showcasing visual media that will spark dialogue, inspire debate and complement the presentation of research at the conference.
This event is organised by the Coalition of European Lobbies for Eastern African Pastoralism (CELEP), including the German Institute for Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture (DITSL), Agrecol Association for AgriCulture & Ecology, and Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium, among others.
