Programme & Trailer 13th Native Spirit Festival 12-20 OCTOBER 2019

Native Spirit Foundation is a non-profit, Volunteer-run organisation founded by Mapuche leader Freddy Treuquil to bring knowledge and awareness of Native cultures, and longer-term Community educational projects supporting Escuela Nueva.

“All the [activists] have come to the conclusion that one objective of making video, radio and television is for the other culture to know us. It is necessary to create a bridge to share our culture in an educational form, without losing our identity.” Freddy Treuquil.

Native Spirit Festival is a project of NS Foundation and the UK’s first and only Independent annual festival of films, talks and performances celebrating Native cultural heritage, showcasing Indigenous Cinema, MediaMakers and Artists. Native Spirit organises Outreach events throughout the year and supports 13 Moons screenings in partnership with SOAS Native Spirit Film Society.

Contact us to curate for your festival and organisation. Our Artistic Director brings 35 years experience in Indigenous Arts Education, including 10 years of programming Indigenous Cinema.
