This year is the second Indigenous Film Festival, hosted by Ranu Welum and David Metcalf Photography, to be held in Bali from May 10-12 2019.
The festival will again be a wellspring of indigenous renewal and solutions to some of the issues faced by indigenous communities.
The films will cover a variety of topics including indigenous wisdom, connection with nature, solution focussed alternatives, land rights issues, success stories, forest preservation, and use of technology to support indigenous interests. Great indigenous leaders come forward when armed with education and positivity. Their past can be our future.
**Please note due to limited capacity at Paradiso theatre, we expect the film festival to be a sell-out, so get in early and secure your ticket.**
