Chicago, Illinois) The Spring 2015 First Nations Film and Video Festival is an event dedicated to Native Women Film Directors and Video makers.

“This exciting event sees FNFVF Inc transitioning out of its old business model which will open the fall 2015 season with another unique film event rather than a festival,” says Director Whiteman, “In 2016, we will begin hosting a large-scale film festival in the spring to steer away from the stereotypical placement of Native American cultural happenings in November.”

All FNFVF Inc. 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, First Nations Film and Video Festival Inc. is the only festival that deals exclusively with Native American filmmakers of all skill levels.
