Dreamspeakers 2012

When the first Dene filmmaker returned home to Canada’s Northwest Territories, his people had no words for his new art. They called it “Dreamtalking”. When you make films a Dene elder said, you are speaking your dreams. Edmonton, Alberta becomes the site of an international gathering of our own Dreamtalkers: filmmakers, performers and artists. Indigenous people from around the globe gather to share their common bond, a linkage with of a natural world whose harmonies and rhythms are being forgotten by those that came later. Dreamspeakers Film Festival provides a venue for Dreamtalkers and offers a unique exploration into Aboriginal cultures from all parts of the globe. Film presentations, public workshops and panel discussions with filmmakers will take place during the festival. Please join us in this celebration of Aboriginal media and culture.
