First Nations Film and Video Festival presents shorts by the Bawaadan Collective

Block Cinema hosts a program of the First Nations Film and Video Festival, a longstanding Chicago Festival that advocates for the work of contemporary Indigenous-made cinema in its many forms, with curation by FNFVF’s director, Ernest M. Whiteman III, who will be in attendance. This program features a selection of short films by the Bawaadan Collective, self-described as “a group of like-minded Indigenous artisans and accomplices who are interested in continually developing our collaborative approaches to modern artistic, storytelling and film production processes.”

This event is presented in partnership with the Northwestern University Native American and Indigenous Student Alliance.
