The National Museum of the American Indian’s Native Cinema Showcase officially kicks off its 20th-anniversary festival today; fully presented online this year, there will be a mix of new films and fan favorites to stream, as well as virtual conversations with filmmakers. Featuring a total of 64 films (9 feature-length and 55 shorts), it’s a great opportunity to broaden your understanding of the stories of Indigenous communities throughout the Western Hemisphere and the Arctic, and we’d highly recommend tuning in between now and next Friday, November 27th, which is when the programming wraps up.
You can check out the full streaming schedule here, but note that most films will be available on demand for five days to watch at your leisure! And with the exception of three of those titles (Blood Quantum and Angry Inuk, which are restricted to the United States, and nîpawistamâsowin: WE WILL STAND UP, restricted to North America), all are available to stream worldwide. (Good news for our pals abroad!)
Programming begins tonight at 7pm ET with a screening of Conscience Point, followed by Retrospective Showcase Shorts I at 9pm ET.
