Join us April 7 - 8, 2017 for our fifth annual Native Crossroads Film Festival, Bodies in Motion

The fifth annual Native Crossroads Film Festival and Symposium returns from April 7—8, 2017, centering around the theme of Bodies in Motion. Through a combination of features, short films, animation, and documentaries, the festival will examine the continuously contested site of the Native body in history, sports, politics, the environment, and popular culture. 

For two days, Native Crossroads will feature the best new Indigenous cinema from around the world,. The films will explore themes from biopolitics and sovereignty to football and healing.  Native Crossroads will bring together diverse perspectives that help extend the work done in media, the academy, and communities.

Native Crossroads is sponsored by the OU Film & Media Studies Program and the Department of Native American Studies, and is made possible by the generous support of the Chickasaw Nation, the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oklahoma, and the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost at the University of Oklahoma. The event is free and open to the public. For accommodations on the basis of disability, please contact Jen Dubois at 405-325-3020.
