First Nations Film and Video Festival call for entries to their Fall Fest

Chicago, Illinois) The First Nations Film and Video Festival, Inc. (FNFVF) is seeking film submissions for its Fall 2013 Festival. Native filmmakers are invited to submit films or videos of any length for inclusion. In addition to promoting films and videos from first–time filmmakers, the festival organizers are hoping to screen films from multiple genres and especially encourage submissions in the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres.

There is no fee to enter films or videos to the First Nations Film and Video Festival and all programs are free and open to the public. Dedicated to providing a venue for the long-overlooked Native American voice in media since it began in 1990, the First Nations Film and Video Festival is the only festival that deals exclusively with Native American filmmakers of all skill levels. This year’s festival is set to take place November 1st through 10th, 2013 at various venues across Chicago.

The mission of First Nations Film and Video Festival, Inc. is to advocate for and celebrate the films and videos of Native Americans that break racial and cultural stereotypes and promote awareness of contemporary Native American issues and society. Native American artists must direct all films submitted. Deadline for submissions for the spring festival is August 15, 2013.

Festival screenings will include question and answer discussions facilitated by the festival director and organizers. Native American filmmakers are invited and encouraged to attend the festival to present and discuss their work.
