Thank you for your interest in submitting to our upcoming California's American Indian & Indigenous Film Festival (CAIIFF) programs. We appreciate the time you're taking to send your work to us and we strongly encourage you to contact us any time if you have questions or concerns.

CAIIFF considers film, video and digital media works made by American Indian and Indigenous media artists (directors, producers, actors, screenwriters). In programming work for the Festival, CAIIFF strives to represent a diversity of ideas, themes and genres in its programming, seeking representation of subjects that would not necessarily be made available through the mainstream forms of media. The Festival prioritizes works that balance unique and new perspectives expressed within the content of the work, cultural and social relevance, a creative approach to form characterized by innovative expression, distinctive style, personal vision, as well as the practice of crossing aesthetic borders in terms of genre, medium and emerging content platform.

We strongly advise that you review our Mission and Vision, in additional to reading about our ArtisticSection and Programming Policies. By submitting your work, you are agreeing for your work to be assessed under these policies, so we feel it's important that you're aware of and understand what these are.
