The 7th annual NATIVE CROSSROADS FILM FESTIVAL
APRIL 4–6 AT the SAM NOBLE MUSEUM in Norman, Oklahoma
Native Crossroads Film Festival is back for a seventh year with the theme “Futures” and highlights feature films, documentaries, animations and short films that consider how Indigenous people and communities are shaping the future. The Festival invites the public to explore the frontiers of Indigenous cinema. Native Crossroads Film Festival runs from April 4-6 at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, 2401 Chautauqua Ave., Norman. All films, speakers and panels are free and open to the public.
This year’s lineup of films asks audiences to envision future landscapes impacted by intergenerational relationships, familial ties, traditional practices, technological advances and environmental concerns of Native communities. These innovative films point to the past and present as ways to contemplate the future for Indigenous people around the world.
For three days, audiences will experience some of the most notable works in global Indigenous cinema. The festival continues its commitment of bringing a diversity of voices from filmmakers, scholars, and tribal representatives. An exciting addition to this year’s festival will be video gaming demonstrations where festival attendees can explore the world of Indigenous storytelling through digital media.
