The Festival aims to raise awareness about Native American language, cultures, and societies through films that share Native American perspectives. The Festival, which is the only one of its kind on the East Coast, brings together artists, authors, cineastes, and actors who share a passion for film and features experiential learning opportunities for the entire public. In the past, filmmakers have used demeaning stereotypes when incorporating Native characters or storylines, which lack nuance, accuracy, and complexity. The Pocahontas Reframed Film Festival offers new insight into previously under-told narratives.
The festival, now in its 7th year, boasts an incredible lineup of films by and about Native people, alongside a number of special events and performances to share the perspectives and stories of Indigenous life.
This year’s event will also include the FIRST Tsenacommacah Eastern Indian Marketplace, featuring native artisans selling handmade décor, art, jewelry, apparel, and more!
