Posted: October 13, 2011 - 12:03am  |  Updated: October 13, 2011 - 12:07am

The Alaska Native Film Festival, a day-long series of new and recent films about Alaska Natives, will run from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at the Anchorage Museum. Most of the films were created by emerging Alaska Native filmmakers.

In addition to the screenings, attendees will hear behind-the-scenes stories from filmmakers and learn about opportunities for Alaska filmmakers. The event is free.

Highlights include a screening of “Native Time,” written and acted by Jack Dalton, and an appearance by director Rachel Naninaaq Edwardson, who offers a sneak peak of her current project “History of the Iñupiat: Project Chariot” and discusses filmmaking in Alaska Native communities. Find a complete schedule at anchoragemuseum.org.

This event coincides with the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Anchorage, which runs Oct. 20-22, and is a partnership with the Alaska Native Heritage Center and Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center, with support from the Anchorage Museum, Anchorage International Film Festival and National Museum of the American Indian.
