Anchorage Film Festival spotlights Alaska Native filmmakers

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.
