Sat 10 March | 16.00-17.30 | Festival Centre | Free Entry | ENGLISH ONLY

Can new technology help empower Indigenous filmmakers? Will the current disruption of power in Hollywood and talk about diversity bring benefits to Indigenous filmmakers? Will indigenous film be the new wave of cinema as people seek out deeper truths in a world of commodity and mass media?

In this talk, Indigenous filmmakers from around the world will seek answers to these questions. Panelists include Mike Jonathan (New Zealand), Briar Grace-Smith (New Zealand) and Libby Hakaraia (Maoriland, New Zealand). The talk is moderated by Tracy Rector (USA).
