Skoden Indigenous Film Festival will take place within the shared territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples (Vancouver, British Columbia) for its first year this summer, 2019. Formed by the School of Contemporary Art at Simon Fraser University, this festival aims to create an inclusive space for BC based indigenous filmmakers. Writers, Directors, DP’s, Editors, and Performers of all ages and experience levels can represent their film before the big screen.

Additionally, our goal is to indigenize the SFU community and amplify the voices of local indigenous artists. We want to create more proactive conversations and spaces for reconciliation. Skoden!
