Producing Native Cinema

How things have changed! More Native films are being produced each year: how is it happening and who’s behind it? What does it take for a Native film to get off the ground (and does it help if your producer was a fashion model)? Join Heather Rae, producer of Frozen River; Chad Burris, producer of Four Sheets to the Wind; and members of the filmmaking collective behind The Wind and Water as they discuss these issues.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
