Bali International Indigenous Film Festival 2019: Stories that Matter

 See the full program here

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. 

We are screening 40 indigenous films from 14 countries with over 25 directors presenting with Q&A.

This event is the largest gathering of indigenous filmmakers coming together in Bali EVER!

Share in this exciting event - meet the directors, share, look, listen and learn.

This is a non-profit event, and profits from the film festival will go to a fund to provide ongoing support to indigenous filmmakers in Indonesia.

**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.**
