Social Change Film Festival looking for films by indigenous filmmakers

social change fest

The 2nd annual Social Change Film Festival takes place in December, and it's looking for submissions.

First Peoples Worldwide (FPW) and the Social Change Film Festival and Institute (SCFFI) are seeking films by Indigenous filmmakers for the second annual Social Change Film Festival & Institute, November 28 – December 2, 2012 in New Orleans, LA USA. SCFFI & FPW will also hold a special panel at the festival.

Films must be created by an Indigenous filmmaker(s) and have a strong social message. We celebrate the independent spirit of excellent film making and creative storytelling. We are looking for films that generate dialogue, spark policy change, and/or activate communities around key social issues of our times. Selected films will represent a diversity of perspectives from all over the world. SCFFI seeks to promote the ability of film to inspire action. We favor films that offer solutions and/or drive community activism on an issue.

There don't appear to be submissions fees for this part of the fest, so if you fit the qualifications above, check it out.
