FILM FESTIVAL FOR NATIVE AMERICAN DIRECTORS CALLS FOR ENTRIES

CHICAGO FILM FESTIVAL FOR NATIVE AMERICAN DIRECTORS CALLS FOR ENTRIES

(CHICAGO, IL) First Nations Film and Video Festival Inc, (FNFVF Inc) Chicago’s only film festival that deals directly with NAtive American Film and Video Directors, is pleased to announce its Call for Entries for the Fall First Nations Film and Video Festival (FNFVF), set to take place November 1st through the 10th at venues across Chicagoland and beyond. The submission deadline is July 30, 2017. The FNFVF is open to Native American directors of all skill level with films of any length and genre that are under five years old.

The festival is free to submit to, which is of vital importance to FNFVF Director Ernest M Whiteman III, a Northern Arapaho filmmaker and artist, “Knowing what it takes to put together any kind of film, having the festival be accessible is very important. Not only to the Native filmmakers wanting the share their voice, but to audiences who would otherwise not see these films anywhere else.”

Established in 1990, the First Nations Film and Video Festival has been on the leading edge of promoting Native American first-voice and self-representation in film and media and making them widely available across Chicago screening at venues such as Northwestern University and the Claudia Cassidy Theater. The mission of the First Nations Film and Video Festival is to advocate for and celebrate the works of Native Americans filmmakers and new works and films that break racial stereotypes and promotes awareness of Native American issues.

“These films are vital to cultural understanding,” say Whiteman, “Seeing our culture from our perspective and gaze allows us to own our own cultures, representations, stories, and voice, which have been out of our hands for so long.”

For more information on FNFVF Inc or the festival guideline and application, feel free to “Like” them on Facebook at “FNFVF.Inc“. You can also submit films via Filmfreeway. “If past festival are an indication, there are many, many Native American filmmakers out there doing great works and we are looking forward to seeing all the great films come in for the fall festival.”
