RED NATION FILM FESTIVAL – The Authentic Voice of American Indian & Indigenous Cinema, is dedicated to breaking the barrier of racism by successfully replacing American Indian stereotype with recognition, new vision, arts, culture and economic prosperity by placing American Indian Filmmakers at the forefront of the entertainment industry and to introduce American Indian Filmmakers to larger, global mainstream audiences while establishing relations between the American Indian community and the entertainment industry.
The Festival theme, “Red is Green” serves to expand the boundaries of how American Indians have typically been defined in our cultural and to also inspire audiences with the sacred personal relationship to Mother Earth that our tribes have kept alive.
RED NATION FILM FESTIVAL (RNFF) is the first American Indian Film Festival in Los Angeles founded in 2003 and had our first festival in 2004. RNFF was the first to establish a “Red is Green” Carpet event placing American Indians on the Red Carpet, mirroring the industry’s “Oscar Red Carpet” in 2009.
Red Nation Film Festival & Awards Show is produced by Joanelle Romero a producton of Red Nation Films.
