About the series:

Imagining Indigenous Cinema: New Voices, New Visions spotlights a new generation of innovative Indigenous filmmakers working with the moving image. Today's filmmakers go beyond storytelling, imagining new worlds through cinema. These vibrant embodiments of time-based art speak to themes of post-colonial resilience, re-matriation of cultures and traditions, explorations of land-based relationships, criticism of the institutional and socio-political settler state, and celebrations of Indigenous queer joy.

This series was co-curated by Colleen Thurston (Choctaw Nation) and Anpa’o Locke (Húŋkpapȟa Lakota and Ahtna Dené) and inspired by the IIC series organized by the UCLA Film & Television Archive in June 2023. IIC UCLA was supported by California Humanities and Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
