In cooperation with Xart Splitta, we want to help showcase Native/indigenous films in Berlin, Germany through Fall/Winter 2018.
Main Themes for films or other multimedia projects include but are not strictly limited to:
- Native/indigenous women
- GLBTIQ communities or two-spirit persons
- contemporary themes and indigenous futurisms, which is a term coined by Professor Grace Dillion (Anishinaabe)
- decolonization of cuisine, culture, languages and traditions or environmental practices.
Discussion panels, workshops and lectures are planned. Filmmakers and artists don’t have to be on location in Berlin but would be very welcome. We can also arrange discussions via video chat. We are open to themes and compositions to accompany your films.
The purpose is for Natives to present and represent themselves and help educate on and lessen Native stereotypes and stereotyping through sharing their stories and experiences on their own terms.
The schedule is now being planned and will be finalized by August. The number of screenings and events will be based on the number of submissions.
Please contact us through our website form, including descriptions and links to your work, your availability and a short bio/profile. Also, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
