The Oneida Indian Nation and the Sundance Institute’s Indigenous Program will host a short-film series on Thursday, August 8, as part of its Native Filmmakers Lab. The joint initiative is designed to expand the reach of Native storytellers in Upstate New York through local film screenings and workshops.
This free community event will feature screenings of the latest films by five Native directors, plus a Q&A with award-winning filmmaker Erica Tremblay.
Oneida Indian Nation Member Jolene Patterson (Wolf Clan), a photographer and aspiring filmmaker, will also be recognized by Sundance and Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter at the event. Jolene is a 2019 recipient of the Sundance Institute’s Full Circle Fellowship, which aims to support the next generation of Native American storytellers.
