American Indian Advisory Board

American Indian Advisory Board

The mission of the San Diego International Film Festival’s American Indian Advisory Board is to authentically tell the story of indigenous people to perpetuate the beauty and strength of these cultures.

The Indigenous Films category gives artists the ability to create entertainment that will begin to end multi-generational cycles of negativity and openly combat the effects of colonization of indigenous people around the world.

This category was created to convey historical truths including setting the record straight on acts of genocide and cruelty.
