5th Annual Pocahontas Reframed Film Festival

Fri–Sun, Nov 19–21, 2021


The East Coast’s Premier Native American Film Festival
Co-presented at VMFA

Representation matters. Storytelling and filmmaking have suffered from a dearth of representation of important groups that influenced American democracy, notably Native Americans. Native culture is rich, steeped in history, and multifaceted, yet mainstream films do not often capture this nuance. This festival offers a series of films by Native American filmmakers that tell an expansive range of stories about Native American experiences and cultures.

Events run all day and include films and panel discussions with prominent Native American filmmakers, performers, artists, and other speakers.
