takes place from February 2. – 5. 2023 in Stuttgart/Germany

MORE THAN LEATHER AND FEATHER is the theme of the North America Native Film Festival 2023. Bold, courageous and progressive indigenous artists shine a light on their traditions, play with traditional materials and connect them with new techniques. The festival celebrates the native cultures of North America – far removed from Hollywood stereotypes – with more than 50 impressive films of various genres, as well as with music, dance, discussions and prominent guests. Fashion – just like film – expresses vitality, beauty and diversity, which for example is evident from the powerful photographs of the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) Fashion Show in Santa Fe, NM. Indigenous designers say: we use fashion as an expression of our history, our pride, and our power of resistance.
