Organized by the Film and Video Center of the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), the Native American Film + Video Festival celebrates the creative energy of Native American directors, producers, writers, actors, musicians, cultural activists, and all the others who support their endeavors. This year the Film and Video Center (FVC) is also observing its 25th anniversary.
The 2006 festival opens on Thursday, November 30, at the National Museum of the American Indian's George Gustav Heye Center in New York with The Journals of Knud Rasmussen, the new feature film directed by Zacharias Kunuk and Norman Cohn (the team that brought us Atanarjuat/The Fast Runner). The festival continues through Sunday, December 3, with more than 125 premieres, award-winning shorts, features and documentaries from Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and the United States.
