NATIVe Indigenous Cinema

NATIVe Indigenous Cinema is a market stand at the European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin that showcases market-ready feature films by Indigenous artists from around the world. This initiative is managed by imagineNATIVE and represents international partners including film festivals, film commissions, and film institutes.

In addition to the feature films brought to market, a roster of international Indigenous producers will attend the EFM as part of the NATIVe Fellows Programme.

The NATIVe Fellows Programme is an international professional-development opportunity for Indigenous producers to attend the European Film Market in Berlin with a market-ready feature film project. The NATIVe Fellows programme is a rare fellowship/lab opportunity exclusive to Indigenous feature film producers or producing directors to have their project(s) promoted through the NATIVe Indigenous Cinema Stand and to participate in a curated programme for the producer to make the most of their time at the EFM.

The NATIVe Fellows programme will bring together a small group of Indigenous producers from the Stand Partners’ regional areas whose EFM activities will be enhanced through specific training, meetings, networking events, panels, and social activities to orient and help them take full advantage of the EFM and the Berlinale.

Join NATIVe in celebrating and showcasing Indigenous Cinema at the European Film Market (EFM) one of the world’s largest film fairs. For Stand Partner opportunities, connect with us at
