42nd annual American Indian Film Festival®    NOVEMBER 3 - 11, 2017

AIFI stands in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota and their thousands of native and non-native allies in the struggle to protect their waters and homelands against bio oil and the development of the Dakota Access Pipeline.   This is the most recent of the on going struggles of indigenous peoples of this continent to protect and preserve their homelands and ways of life against colonial and capitalist interests.    AIFI has presented these stories and many others of cultural affirmation,  resistance and survival over the years and they will continue to be featured through the 42nd annual American Indian Film Festival®, to be presented November 3-11, 2017 in San Francisco.
