During the festival the latest documentaries in the field of anthropology are screened and discussed. The festival also hosts presentations in relation to the films; in Ísafjördur both in Icelandic and foreign experts will give presentations.

Apart from NAFA, the Jón Sigurdsson Museum in Hrafnseyri, the University Center of the West Fjords, the Edinburgh House in Ísafjördur and the local association Roots on cultural diversity will also participate in organizing “Breaking the Barriers.”
