Presented by the Native Americans and Indigenous Students Group at NYU. Cosponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, NYU Department of Anthropology, NYU Center for Media, Culture and History, La Herencia Latina, American Indian Community House, and New York Women’s Foundation.
The NYU Native Americans and Indigenous Students Group is now proud to call the NYU Native & Indigenous Film Festival, founded in 2014, an annual event. Each year, the organization invites more filmmakers, gains more institutional support, and collaborates with broader networks to present a stellar line-up of recent work produced by Indigenous filmmakers. Inspired by the promotion and circulation of Indigenous film and media programming at the National Museum of the American Indian, this festival also features new student productions in addition to award-winning films from NYU.
The invited film programming includes productions by Angelo Baca (Diné/Hopi), Christopher Ciegelski, Christian Guiñanzaca, Jacqueline Hazen, Alex Lazarowich (Cree), Shane McSauby, Alyse Takeyesu, Keith Taylor, and more. In addition, the festival will feature an Indigenous Artist Spotlight with Tanis Parenteau (Métis) and new works from the Nakoda Audio Visual Club, which is based in the Stoney Nakoda First Nation near Morley, Alberta.
