Call for Entries
Dedicated to providing a venue for the long overlooked Native American voice in media, the First Nations Film and Video Festival is the only festival that deals exclusively with American Indian filmmakers of all skill levels. The festival has been in existence for over twenty years.
This year's festival is set to take place November 2 through 11, at various venues across Chicago.
The mission of the First Nations Film and Video Festival is to advocate for and celebrate the works of American Indians work that break racial stereotypes and promote awareness of American Indians issues. All films submitted must be directed by American Indians artists. Deadline for submissions is September 15.
Festival screenings will include question and answer discussions facilitated by the director; American Indians filmmakers are invited and encouraged to attend the festival to present and discuss their work.
