The call for entries for the Fall 2021 Edition of the First Nations Film and Video Festival will open on June 25 with a deadline of June 30, 2021.

Why such a short call? In the past few years, while we have grown and received many entries from Indigenous filmmakers from the Americas, we have also noted that not everyone reads the guidelines. So, we are inundated with filmmakers that do not fit the guidelines, and filmmakers that have Native American topics, but not an Indigenous director. To help us sift through the over average 200 entries we get every season, we thought we will limit the timeframe and hope that all Indigenous filmmakers that want to screen at the FNFVF submit their films as quickly as possible.

We have only two guidelines:

1) an Indigenous/Native American director. You can find our definition of “Native American” on the rules of the FilmFreeway page.

2) Films must be under five (5) years old. We want the newer representations of Native people, both in front of and behind the camera.

There are not fees to enter. All programs of the First Nations Film and Video Festival are free and open to the public.

Thank you again for all of your years of support.
