Red Nation International Film Festival & Awards is a program of the Red Nation Celebration Institute. Films that screen at Red Nation International Film Festival (RNIFF) have received broadcast network deals, distribution deals, actors have been hired for television series, casted in feature films and asked to be presenters at NAACP Image Awards. Writers are looked at for future television shows, these are a few of the key benefits that the film festival provides. One of our major accomplishments is that RNIFF has locked down exclusive screenings with major production companies and chooses films to screen BEFORE being screened to general public then going on to win awards!
This is the Native Festival that screens Academy Award winning films and Emmy Award winning films before they were nominated — for the past 12 years. “I Stand: The Guardians of the Water“, “Wind River”, “Woman Walks Ahead”, “Indian Horse”, “Frozen River”, “The Garden” and “Honor the Treaties” were screened at Red Nation International Film Festival. In addition, RNIFF was the first festival in the world to screen before its premier and to the general public in partnership with Summit Entertainment “Twilight Saga: New Moon”. This is the Festival to experience Native Cinematic Excellence. Red is Green Carpet Events were first launched at RNIFF, providing a platform in keeping with its’ mission American Indian at the forefront of the Entertainment Industry.
