Together with our partners, both in Reykjavik and West Fjords, we have explored the creation of the optimal network involving artists, institutions and cultural events most appropriate to be the partners of our joint venture Film and Anthropology Academy.
The meet-ups during the bilateral initiative have put the basis of partnerships in between ANTHROPOESIS ASSOCIATION – Center for Innovation , Development and Film Production (https://cineimpact.org) from Romania and HVERSDAGSSAFN – Museum of Everyday Life (https://everydaylife.is) along numerous other strategic partners from Iceland.
In between 7th and 13th December 2019, we enjoyed insightful meetings and local visits discussing in detail the setting-up of an International Film & Anthropology Academy, integrating most effective features and practices in order to enhance Social Sciences entrepreneurship and Cinema development.
We have chosen not the most warm time of the year to visit our former and future friends in Reykjavik and West Fjords. On purpose. Partly we were a bit naive in our decision, partly we thought it is a good moment to empathize deeper and understand better the realm of Iceland, along the harsh weather and adaptive social conditions of our welcoming hosts.
During the exploratory visit made to Iceland, the following organisations and institutions were involved in our fructuous meet-ups and discussions:
Museum of Everyday Life / Skobudin hversdagssafn ehf
University of Iceland, Faculty of Sociology, Anthropology and Folkloristics
Reykjavik Film Festival
Skjaldborg Film Festival
Icelandic Film Center
We look forward to see each other again and welcome them in Romania.
The visit was financed from the FUND FOR BILATERAL RELATIONS, EEA Grants 2014 – 2021 operated by RO-CULTURA.
