Five years ago one of the oldest industrial buildings of Charleroi- ‘les Forges de la Providence’- was saved from demolition, being bought by two citizens: Thierry Camuy and Mika Hell. Together with some close friends and artists, they turned it into a place of alternative creation which became a symbol of renaissance and image rehabilitation for the whole region.

Organised by the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain & Ireland (RAI) since 1985, it is an itinerant festival that moves biennially from one university host to another, in association with local community and cultural organisations.

The festival will be held from Thursday 13 June to Sunday 16 June 2013 in Edinburgh, hosted by National Museums Scotland and the STAR consortium. Scottish Training in Anthropological Research (STAR) is a collaboration between the Universities of Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and St. Andrews. Over 60 new films will be screened alongside a conference 'New Observations' and a selection of special events and workshop about art & anthropology and the use of archival film.
