Native American first-voice and self-representation has been an on-going issue in many arenas of society. None, so deeply ingrained than film, where the image of Native peoples has been the subject of much controversy on past years. To promote a better representation, the First Nations Film and Video Festival has been at the forefront of promoting films by Native American Directors from the US, Canada Central and South America, and Mexico.
The First Nations Film and Video Festival Inc’s Call for Entries for the Spring 2018 season is open and the deadline is FEBRUARY 17, 2018. You can get an application on the FNFVF website or via FilmFreeway at this link:
The Spring festival runs May 1st through the 10th at various venues across Chicago and beyond. Last fall the FNFVF hosted events in Kenosha, Wisconsin and Columbus, Missouri. It also host events at the Music Box Theater and the Gene Siskel Film Center. The festival continues to grow with submissions increasing festival to festival.

Thanks are owed to the FNFVF Board , the venues for their unstinting support, and all the Native American filmmakers making their voice heard.
