Female Eye Film Festival to focus on Aboriginal women
The Female Eye Film Festival (FeFF) was created to showcase films by women from around the world. The festival has decided to host a two-day line-up focusing specifically on films by aboriginal women in honour of National Aboriginal Appreciation Month as part of its 2013 festival.
On Wednesday, June 19 FeFF will feature the Experimental Film Program and FeFF Photo Exhibit. The program and exhibit will be hosted at the WARC Gallery from 7:00 PM to midnight. FeFF will premier eight Super 8 experimental films directed by up and coming Aboriginal women who have been mentored by former FeFF directors. There will also be a solo exhibit of photographs by Summer Faith Garcia.
FeFF and ImagineNATIVE will celebrate Aboriginal Appreciation Day on Friday, June 21st with showings of films from the Aboriginal Film Makers Series from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Carlton Cinema. This will be followed by the Canadian Aboriginal Film Program consisting of two films, and the Edition Young Filmmaker Workshop, which will present eight short experimental films. It will conclude with the Canadian and International Aboriginal Filmmaker Program.
