Native FILM Market Indigenous Filmmaker Showcase created out of a direct need for American Indian & Indigenous filmmakers to promote and showcase their films to distribution companies from around the world, set in a unique experience. Native FILM Market lens itself to filmmakers pitching their ‘work-in-progress’ to funders and industry professionals each year. 

This is the ONLY Native FILM Market Showcasing American Indian & Indigenous films, filmmakers, designed and focused on Native content.

Trailers screened annually at Red Nation Film Festival is a great opportunity to market your film to hundreds of film fans. 


Each year, the Festival chooses four ‘work-in-progress’ short films and four Trailers to screen.

Filmmakers can submit their  ‘work-in-process’ film short (20 or less) or Trailer (one minute or less) by emailing to a link our work to:

Once submitted Team Red Nation will inform which four shorts and trailers will screen at 15th Red Nation Film Festival. 

‘Work-in-Progress’ short films will have the opportunity to screen their film once during the Festival.

Trailers will screen throughout the Festival at all screenings during the Festival.
