Vision Maker Media announces its ninth biennial Vision Maker Film Festival, October 10 to November 13, 2022, in Lincoln, NE and free streaming online.
Vision Maker Media is celebrating “Together” by gathering Native American and Alaska Native films for an assembly of in-person and online streaming for the collective. Vision Maker Media chose to recognize “Together” with a graphic of worldwide Indigenous language interpretations of the word “together” to recognize UNESCO and Mexico’s Decade of Indigenous Languages (2022-2023) declaration that calls for “indigenous peoples’ rights to freedom of expression, to an education in their mother tongue and to participation in public life using their languages, as prerequisites for the survival of indigenous languages many of which are currently on the verge of extinction.”
Thank you to all our friends, fans, partners and sponsors for making Vision Maker Media’s First Indigenous Online Film Festival a success. Our five-week celebration of Indigenous storytelling has finally come to a close.
