Organiser

Native Spirit UK

Native Spirit was established in 2005 and is the UK's first Independent organisation promoting contemporary Indigenous Cinema, Media & Artists with Year-round events, an annual Film Festival starting 12th October in London, and sister festival in Taiwan. We curate Indigenous Films - enquiries nativespiritfilms@gmail.com  

The founder of Native Spirit Foundation, Freddy Treuquil, Mapuche leader states: “All the [activists] have come to the conclusion that one objective of making video, radio and television is for the other culture to know us. It is necessary to create a bridge to share our culture in an educational form, without losing our identity.”

Special thanks and gratitude to all Filmmakers, Artists, Speakers, Volunteers and Collaborators who support Indigenous Cinema and make these events happen.
