A Dene elder once said that when you make films, “you are speaking your dreams”. Since then, Indigenous filmmakers have referred to their craft as “Dreamtalking”. This festival has become an annual international gathering of Dreamtalkers — filmmakers, performers, and artists — from around the globe who gather to share this common bond and link with the natural world through film. All film screenings or only $12, and their are a variety of panels and workshops where you can learn more about Indigenous cultures and filmmaking. Visit the website for a full program and to buy tickets. —Lindsay Shapka
