The 6th Annual Sámi Film Festival returns to Scandinavia House this February! Presented as a partnership between the National Nordic Museum in Seattle and Scandinavia House in New York, the Festival will take place on February 9 and 10, 2024 with both in-person and virtual screenings. The program includes a variety of contemporary and historical Sámi features, documentaries and short films. The Sámi Film Festival will feature the selections of guest curator Liselotte Wajstedt.
Wajstedt, a Sámi filmmaker from Sweden, is the director of The Silence in Sápmi (dir. Liselotte Wajstedt, Sweden, 2022) and Sire and the Last Summer (dir. Liselotte Wajstedt, Sweden, 2022), both of which screened at last year’s Sámi Film Festival. The Sámi Film Festival originated as a partnership between the National Nordic Museum and Pacific Sámi Searvi in 2018. Since that time, it has become an onsite event drawing audiences from the East and West Coasts.
Tickets and a full lineup will be announced closer to the date; check back soon for more details!
