We will close the festival with a brand new venue, the Comfort Station, which is part of Logan Square International Films on Saturday, May 10th at 6:00pm with a repeat screening of the FNFVF Short Films Program and a new feature film.

All programs are free and open to the public. Festival screenings will include question and answer discussions facilitated by the festival director and organizers. Says Ernest Whiteman III, FNFVF Director, “It is always great to have brand new venues host screenings and attract new audiences to see these little-seen films. With the help of Northwestern, the Lutheran School and Comfort Station, more audiences will be treated to Native-made films from all over the country.”

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.
