Vision Maker Media Sets the Stage for Upcoming Film Festival
Vision Maker Media (visionmakermedia.org/festival) is bringing Native storytelling and film to life at the seventh biennial Vision Maker Film Festival. More than 30 new films by diverse filmmakers will showcase at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center in Lincoln, April 20-26.
Working with filmmakers of color on all levels is a key focus of this weeklong event, from inspiring future filmmakers to polishing fine skills and knowledge of professional resources. Our partners in the National Minority Consortia (NMC) will each share their feature documentary films and bring filmmakers of color to Lincoln to work with emerging filmmakers.
Local Native youth will learn from professional documentary producers during workshops open to the public, April 21-23. Teachers, students and the public are encouraged to attend and learn about a variety of cultures. Vision Maker Media will be screening stories of social justice, hope and overcoming adversity throughout this powerful event. For more information, visit visionmakermedia.org/festival.
