Gratis // open for all
Sjón International Anthropological Film Festival is returning to Copenhagen in March 2019 with a whole new theme to explore: SONANCE

Close your eyes and recall your favorite song. Your favorite instrument, or your mother’s lullaby. The noises of your childhood neighborhood. The sound your pet makes when you come back home. The tingling-inducing vibration of a singing bowl. The harmony in your lover’s “Good morning”. 

Open call

Sjón is looking for anthropological audiovisual work that engages with the concept of SONANCE in a variety of ways. Human- or nonhuman-made soundscapes. Silence. Ethnomusicology. Synaesthesia. Biophonies. 

If you have an audiovisual project that pertains to the theme, please submit it here:
Deadline for submissions: Jan 15th 2019

For any other questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to write directly at


About Sjón

Sjón is an annual festival screening anthropological audio-visual works. It takes the shape of an anthropological playground consisting of two parts: the screening of works made by filmmakers with a formal anthropological, ethnological, folklore etc background (of any length and at any level) and an interactive, participatory space for experimentation with form and concepts.
