First Nations Film and Video Festival, Inc. is pleased announce our educational component of the film festival. For years, artists and producers have allowed the FNFVF to maintain their films and videos in the FNFVF Archive in which they agreed to future educational screenings of their works to promote Native American first-voice and self-representation in media. Recently, the FNFVF acquired some public performance rights to a couple of popular Native-produced films, which allows for free, educational screenings.

FNFVF Educational Films ProgramNow, First Nations Film and Video Festival, Inc. offers to bring Native-produced films and videos to your classroom or organizational presentations free of charge to help promote contemporary Native American culture and society in the classrooms and colleges of Chicago.
