Vision Maker Media Gears Hosts Spring Film Festival
April 20 @ 8:00 am - April 26 @ 5:00 pm
A unique opportunity awaits the Lincoln area in 2018 that brings Native storytelling and film to life. The 7th biennial Vision Maker Film Festival will take place April 20-26 at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The theme “We Are All Related” is a conceptual translation from the Lakota language–Mitakuye Owasin–a commonly used expression indicating the Lakota’s relationship to each other and the world.
Opening night, April 20th, will feature the award-winning film “RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World” at The Ross. The film explores the Native American influence on music history despite efforts to ban, censor and erase Indian culture in the U.S. You can find out more about this film online at www.rumblethemovie.com.
In total, more than 30 new films by diverse filmmakers from across the country will be showcased–stories of social justice, hope and overcoming adversity. Filmmakers will present and encourage dialogue to provide educational opportunities that benefit teachers, students and the public. Sponsorships available: http://bit.ly/VMFF2018Sponsor.
