“Our Stories Onscreen: Creating a Narrative with Native Filmmakers.”
Representations of Native Americans in film have a long history of stereotypes and generalizations. Increasing Indigenous visibility in American culture is a goal of the Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous Film Program. Bird Runningwater supports Indigenous filmmakers as they share their stories. Since 2001, he has worked to build a global Indigenous film community. As Program Director of the Native American and Indigenous Program at Sundance Institute, Runningwater supports Indigenous artists from across the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and other countries. Over the past twenty five years, more than 300 Indigenous filmmakers have participated in the Sundance program helping to bring their stories and voices to the screen.Read Bird Runningwater's Bio
