Oneida Smartphone Film Festival

The Oneida Film Society presents the first Oneida Smartphone Film Festival. The theme for the festival is Telling Our Own Stories. Our vision is to create a film platform for novice and experienced filmmakers to incorporate talent and creativity into a 3-10 minute film captured on a smartphone or tablet. We are looking for stories created by Wisconsin residents that represent Native communities and inspire individuals to promote self-discovery, connection, and build relationships with others. Submissions will narrate belief, culture, and personal stories. Grant funds were received from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment of the Arts to support the Oneida Smartphone Film Festival.
