Vision Maker Media will be part of NATIVe – Indigenous Cinema, a market stand at the European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin. It showcases market-ready feature films by Indigenous artists from around the world. This initiative is presented by imagineNATIVE and 11 international partners including film festivals, film commissions, and film institutes. The Stand is presented within the framework of the Berlinale NATIVe special series. In addition to feature films, a roster of international Indigenous producers will be attending, with projects, including those of the NATIVe Fellows, promoted at the Stand for interested delegates.
