The Visual Anthropology Meetings (JAV) are cultural-academic events organized by a group of anthropologists and independent documentary filmmakers. Since 2005 our annual events have taken place with support from the School of National Anthropology (ENAH), the Autonomous University of Mexico City (UACM), the Claustro de Sor Juana University (UCSJ) and in close collaboration with the International Documentary Film Festival of Mexico City (DocsDF).

These Meetings – with conferences, roundtable discussions, exhibitions of photography and visual arts and a sample of the best contemporary ethnographic documentaries – focus on promoting visual anthropology and the use of creative audiovisual media ranging from the social sciences, humanities and cultural studies.
