Six Reasons to go to Native FilmFest
Now celebrating its 12th season, Native FilmFest – a signature cultural program of Agua Caliente Cultural Museum – is one of the most highly regarded events of its kind. Screenings will be followed by informative Q&A sessions with filmmakers, directors, and actors in attendance. We have put together our top six reasons why you should go to this week's Native FilmFest.
- Celebrate Culture. The Native FilmFest features films by, about and starring Native Americans and other Indigenous people from around the world.
- Date Night. Most of the films are scheduled after 5 p.m., so grab a cocktail and dinner at the onsite Camelot Internationale Café and enjoy an evening of films.
- Special Guest. Elizabeth Weatherford, Founder and Director of the Film and Video Center of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, returns as our Guest Programmer.
- Mix and Mingle. Tented receptions will be held daily between the afternoon and evening screenings to chat with other filmgoers and don’t forget to bring your camera to get a photo with filmmakers, directors, or actors.
- Celebrating Film. The Richard M. Milanovich Award for Distinguished Contributions to Indigenous Film will be presented to Native filmmaker Chris Eyre.
- Good Deal. Tickets are only $10 for Adults and $7 for Senior Adults (60+), Youth (16 and under), Students, and Active Military Personnel. All Access Passes are $70 and provide entry to all screenings. Purchase your tickets now.
