    I was unable to attend but festivals like NatiVisions Film Festival are sorely needed. In this media world where it is difficult for Native peoples own their own voice, their own culture, their own stories and representations, fests by Natives for Natives become so very important and I am proud to have had my film "The Final Meeting" among the selections.

    As the Director of the First Nations Film and Video Festival in Chicago, it is awesome to see such film festivals across the country also dedicated to first-voice and self-representation in media and film.

    Great communications and clear guidelines. I hope submit more films to NatiVisions Film Festival.
