Vision Maker Media (VMM, visionmakermedia.org) is excited to carry a selection of film titles for purchase or rent that are available for home entertainment and educators in the classroom. Purchasing or renting one of these films sends a good portion of the purchase price to Native filmmakers who made the films. New titles are added regularly. Sign-up for the newsletter to get any offered monthly discounts or suggested titles for viewing. To check and view more than 70 titles, go to visionmakermedia.org/shop.
Check out VMM’s YouTube Channel for two special short film animations: A Native American Night Before Christmas and The Twelve Days of Native Christmas. These two stories playfully adapt and transpose the traditional Christmas tale and song into a fun and entertaining Native version. Go to visionmakermedia.org/christmas2022 through December 31 to stream these two enduring holiday favorites for free.
Vision Maker Media is the premier source of public media by and about Native Americans since 1976. Their mission is empowering and engaging Native people to share stories. They envision a world changed and healed by understanding Native stories and the public conversations they generate. They work with VMM funded producers to develop, produce, and distribute programs for all public media. VMM supports training to increase the number of Native Americans and Alaska Natives producing public broadcasting programs. A key strategy for this work is in partnerships with Tribal nations and Native organizations and communities. Learn more at visionmakermedia.org.
