The Caravan Farm Theatre is welcoming submissions for their first Indigenous Short Film Showcase.

Five short films will be chosen and will be shown ahead of each of the five feature films shown at their film festival Aug. 25 to Sept. 5, according to a news release from the Caravan Farm Theatre.

Three panelists, Indigenous elders and artists, will decide the winning films, including Renelta Arluk, Director of Indigenous Arts at the Banff Centre; Bill Cohen, a researcher, artist and UBCO educator; and Aaron Leon, and artist, activist and academic.

Caravan Farm Theatre's 2021 film festival is their second annual event, which will be held in their timber barn theatre in Armstrong over a ten-night period.

To submit for the showcase, films should be between six and 20 minutes long, created within the last five years, and be created primarily by Indigenous persons, according to the release. All genres and styles are welcome, but films are to have a maximum rating of 14A.

Submissions close July 19 and each of the five selected will receive an honorarium of $500.

For festival attendees, tickets go on sale in July.
