MovieMaker Coolest Film Festival Festivals

Skábmagovat Indigenous Peoples’ Film Festival 

January 23-26, 2020/ Inari, Finland / skabmagovat.fi

The Skábmagovat festival, which is run by advocates of the Sámi peoples of Finland and recently saw its 20th anniversary, is a regional film festival for promoting indigenous peoples’ cinema. Recent screenings have included indigenous films from the Sápmi regions of Europe and Arctic areas of Greenland, Alaska, and Russia. A film made in the endangered Haida language, which counts only a dozen or so speakers, was screened at the most recent fest. And the filmgoing facilities are anything but ordinary: “Their Northern Lights Theater is an actual wall of snow which films are projected onto,” explains a panelist. “The theater’s ‘roof’ is the Northern Lights.”

    The Artis Center in Naples, Fl is really extraordinary. It’s the hub of performing arts, music, and film in Southwest Florida. It’s the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Symphony all in one – with art and entertainment for all ages. One of the things that impressed me most was the cultural campus for children, with programs for art and music in the form of summer camps, infusing art and music (and the importance of it) at a young age.
