Each year, BSDFF screens a selection of impactful documentaries made by and about Indigenous peoples. Our mission is to bring stories from across the globe to our beautiful mountain town, create a vibrant, quality event that gathers our engaged community and expand conversation around ideas that matter. Indigenous stories and storytellers are paramount to this conversation, and the Native Filmmaker Initiative seeks to elevate the role of Indigenous documentary filmmakers, their perspectives and artistic expressions, in this dialogue. To achieve this, BSDFF will program a strand of films exclusively directed or produced by Indigenous filmmakers.
Submissions are open now through October 9, 2021! Click below to submit on FilmFreeway. Selections will screen in the 19th annual Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, February 18-27, 2022.
