Workshop: Indigenous lens - 48 hours film project - open screening


sign up here! 

Join us in this border disrupting and ground breaking Indigenous filmmaking workshop. The workshop meets two times: On Thursday we meet to discuss Indigenous filmmaking, and we then plan our experimental short films to be produced at the festival in the next two days. On Saturday the short films we create will be screened open for all festival goers. 

All filmmaking styles are welcome here: documentaries, dance, storytelling, experimental film, or whatever you wish. There are no borders. A few playful points to use will be introduced.

We welcome all to join us, Indigenous and otherwise. Film editing experience is encouraged. If you can produce videos for TikTok you are good. A mobile phone and some experience is enough. Nothing fancy is necessary. This is play! Filmmaking will be done in groups. We will decide the groups in the workshop. Come alone or with a friend. You can also participate as a single short filmmaker.  

Join us for joy and creating as disruption! We hold intentional space for vulnerable storytelling. No one can tell your story but you. 

Short film projects language: Your choice (subtitles encouraged for accessibility)
