Project Description

Eda Elif Tibet (Turkey) is an independent documentary filmmaker and a visual anthropologist who mostly films and produces her own films on local livelihood rights and social justice. Through her award-winning film ‘Amchi’ (2013) on Tibetan healers, Eda was named most inspiring filmmaker of the year by the Jakarta Film Festival (2014). Her film ‘Hey Goat!’ (2014) on nomadic pastoralists of Turkey has been screened at the History Museum of Geneva and received the jury prize at Slovakia’s International Festival of Sustainable Development Films. Her latest musical documentary ‘Refugee Here I Am’ (April 2015) is directed with Enzo Ikah, a Congolese musician and refugee himself. This documentary has premiered in cinemas in Turkey and is currently touring the world intending to create dialogue between the displaced and the authorities in charge. Eda holds a MPhil in Social Anthropology from the University of Kent (UK). Whilst completing her doctorate at Bern University in Switzerland, she currently works as a researcher on a Swiss National Science Foundation funded visual anthropology research project documenting unaccompanied minor refugees in Turkey and their biographies on education. She continues filming and producing her own films under her label, Tibetto Productions.
