Looking for a way to learn more about Indigenous culture, history, and storytelling this Reconciliation Week? Tune into the First Nations Film Festival to watch groundbreaking films and be a part of empowering discussions.


From the 30th of May to the 3rd of June 2023, First Nations Film Festival (previously known as Virtual Indigenous Film Festival), will be screening award-winning feature films, documentaries, and short films through the streaming platform, FanForceTV. 

That means no matter what Country you’re on during Reconciliation Week, you can purchase an All Access Pass (or Single Pass) and be a part of the festival (and from the comfort of your couch!).



Each year, the festival is curated around the themes of Reconciliation Week or NAIDOC Week. This year’s Reconciliation Week theme, ‘Be a Voice for Generations’, is about taking action for change that will benefit both present and future generations.

Over five days, the festival will stream four feature films and a collection of short films, with three different viewing times for each, so you have plenty of chances to catch them all. Plus each viewing will be accompanied by a live chat so everyone tuned in can join in a meaningful discussion. 

This year, the First Nations Film Festival is also raising funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, a community-led charity that responds to remote communities’ requests for culturally relevant books, as well as running programs that help communities tell and publish their stories in the language of their choice. Audience members will have the chance to donate to the fundraiser during the screenings.
