Pocahontas Reframed “Storytellers” Film Festival
The Byrd Theater, Richmond
November 21-24, 2019

The Pocahontas Reframed “Storytellers” Film Festival, a legacy project of the 2019 Commemoration, began in 2017 and was inspired by a passion and desire for indigenous languages, cultures, and societies to thrive. Now the largest Native American film festival on the East Coast, the annual event brings together artists, authors, filmmakers, and actors who share their experiences, teach, and explain their creativity and history. The Festival includes screenings of Native American-affiliated classics and recently released films that have been official selections of world-renowned festivals including the Sundance Film Festival, the South by Southwest Film Festival, and the Toronto International Film Festival. For additional programming, the Festival has formed strategic partnerships with Virginia Commonwealth University, the University of Richmond, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Virginia Museum of History & Culture, the Virginia Film Office, the French Film Festival, and Richmond’s Byrd Theatre.
