Native Spirit Film Festival returns to Bloomsbury to present Indigenous Language Films, MediaMakers, Artists and Musicians in October. Now in it’s 13th year, Native Spirit is the UK’s premiere and only independent annual festival. Our sister festival, Native Spirit Taiwan, runs in November.
The founder of Native Spirit Foundation, Freddy Treuquil, Mapuche leader states:
“All the [activists] have come to the conclusion that one objective of making video, radio and television is for the other culture to know us. It is necessary to create a bridge to share our culture in an educational form, without losing our identity.”
The opening night is in collaboration with SOAS Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) at SOAS Brunei Theatre. For more information and links to festival programme: http://www.nativespiritfoundation.org
