TRIBE Project presents Through My Eyes, a festival of short films created by indigenous minorities from all over the world. Through My Eyes aims to redefine the word ‘indigenous,’ originally meaning “of the land,” to embrace the artistic contributions of those cinematic artists who identify as belonging to an indigenous minority. The selected films tell stories from different parts of the world including the tribal lands of the United States, Iran, Nepal, Central America, and many more. The films range from narrative triumphs to poignant documentaries and vivacious animations. Collectively, these are stories of resistance, courage, and hope.

The festival will consist of three days of Native power! On Friday evening, we will celebrate our opening night with a VIP cocktail hour, including hors d’oeuvres and drinks. We will then invite the general public to join us for live entertainment and films from North America, Canada, and Alaska. Our Saturday features a full day of films from all over the world, followed by a meet-and-greet with festival organizers, filmmakers, and other VIPs. Sunday, we will be presenting a panel series featuring industry professionals discussing topics concerning indigenous representation in the film industry.
