Native American Film Festival

Watch the Sarasota Native American Film Festival for Free!

From the Sarasota Film Festival team- For a second year, we produced a great film series that we hope you will find both illuminating and enjoyable – the Sarasota Native American Film Festival, which is now available to watch online.

You can see all the films HERE FOR FREE until Sunday, March 28th.

The mission of the event is to present cinematic works related to the experience of indigenous people in the Americas. Showcasing a diverse program of over 20+ films, live Q&As and panels, our festival features the World Premiere of the documentary “Finding Angola: Manatee’s County First Black Community,” directed by Charles Clapsaddle and a retrospective of films from the First Nations Mi’kmaq filmmaker Catherine Anne Martin, including the World Premiere of her new documentary “The Basket Maker.

The festival also spotlights “Smoke Signals,” the seminal 1998 road-trip dramedy directed by Chris Eyre, as well as “Songs My Brothers Taught Me,” the debut feature from the celebrated, Academy Award-nominated director Chloe Zhao.

Among other programming highlights are films by the noted Seminole/Muskogee director Sterlin Harjo, short films by emerging indigenous filmmakers, and music videos.

The festival is produced by the Sarasota Film Festival and the Boxser Diversity Initiative, in collaboration with the Native Reel Cinema Festival, the Stranahan House Museum, and the Ah-Tah-Thi- Ki Museum of Seminole Culture and History.
