Evaluation Through its unique focus on ethnologically motivated films from and about Africa, Asia, America and Oceania, the Freiburg Film Forum, with its distinctly political motivation has met with quite a good response in corresponding sectors. As an explicitly public festival, the film forum also incorporates intensive discussions on content and workshops. The festival is a bi-annual event; workshops (Visual Anthropology); seminar language is English.
