Hyphenated-Americans Film Festival

The Hyphenated-Americans Film Festival featured 11 films about Americans with intersecting identities informing their unique experiences. The history of the term “hyphenated-American” is complex and was even used by some throughout history as a derogatory term. The complexity of this issue is what this festival will explore. The festival will highlight that being American is being hyphenated American. It is Americans’ complex, rich identities, no matter how individuals choose to describe themselves, that our festival will celebrate. This festival includes films ranging from documentaries and dramas to a comedy special. We hope you will join us in celebrating the diversity that is so vital to the American experience.

Tales from planet earth film festival

Tales from Planet Earth returned November 3-5, 2017 with the theme Land is Life. The 6th Tales will showcase stories that inform, challenge, and inspire us to rethink relationships to land in an era when greed, corruption, and resource demands are swallowing up ancestral and customary lands, severing cultural traditions rooted in the earth, and threatening the livelihoods, sovereignty, and self-determination of communities throughout the world. Brought to you by WUD Film and the Nelson Institute's Center for Culture, History and Environment.
