Vision Maker Film Festival Features Over 40 Works by Native American Filmmakers

Vision Maker Media is proud to announce its biggest film festival yet—the Fifth Biennial Vision Maker Film Festival. Being held Friday, March 14 through Thursday, March 20 in the Nebraska cities of Lincoln, Omaha, and Kearney, the Festival will showcase over 40 works by Native filmmakers.

To open the Festival, a special screening of Injunuity with director/producer Adrian Baker will be taking place at KANEKO in Omaha on Thursday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public with free admission.

The opening reception is on Friday, March 14 and will be held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Van Brunt Visitors Center (313 N. 13th St.) at 5 p.m. A music performance by The Delbert Anderson Trio and hors d’oeuvres sponsored by NET (Nebraska Educational Telecommunications) will give way to two highly anticipated screenings followed by Q&A’s at The Ross—Injunuity, 7 p.m., with director/producer Adrian Baker, and Winter in the Blood, 8 p.m., with actor Chaske Spencer of Twilight-saga fame and director Alex Smith.

We’re excited to announce that this year’s Festival will feature two special film blocks: Young Warriors (ages 12-25) and Women Warriors (in honor of Women’s History Month). A special children and families’ screening will feature films for grades K-6. Native filmmakers and leaders will present their films and conduct workshops that will provide both educational opportunities that will benefit teachers, students, the general public, and Natives in the community.

Throughout the week-long screenings in Lincoln, more than a dozen Native guest speakers who were involved with the films being showcased will be in attendance.
