The Pocahontas Reframed Film Festival honors the contributions of all Native Americans and reinvigorates conversations about telling the truth of indigenous life here in America and across the North American continent.
Thanks to all our sponsors and partners who help us tell these stories: Virginia Humanities, Virginia Film Office, Virginia Commonwealth University Humanities Research Center, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The French Film Festival of Richmond, F&R Engineering, Baskervill Architects, Capital Results, Spotts Fain, and VPM. Also, many thanks to all of you who attended this year’s festival.
We just completed our 5th Annual Festival, and many of our films over the last five years have been focused on the importance of women in Native life and culture. Respecting women has always been integral to Native culture. Therefore, the Pocahontas Reframed Film Festival stands with the women of the Mattaponi Tribe in their quest for equal rights on their Reservation.
