This festival will screen recent Indian written, directed and acted feature films. It intends to combat simplistic images of Indians in American cinema, and to celebrate Indians telling their own stories through the medium of film. The series hopes to educate a broad audience about American Indian life and artistic achievement, and to foster tolerance, intercultural understanding and human rights.
