The annual series of outstanding feature films celebrates the work of Native Americans in the movies—directors, producers, actors, writers and cultural activists—and cinema’s capacity to tell important Native stories.
At the Movies programs have been made
possible with support from the New York State Council on the Arts. Additional support has been provided by Creative Capital, World of
Wonder Productions, and Native American Public Telecommunications, CinemaTropical, UCLA Film and Television Archive, the Consulate General of Mexico in New York, and the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles.
Programs that are part of Celebrating Native American Nations! focus on the beauty and diversity of all indigenous regions of the Americas. Leadership support for the Celebrating Native American Nations! program series has been provided by The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust. Generous support has been provided by American Express; a grant from the Nathan Cummings Foundation, with the support and encouragement of Andrew Lee and Jason Cummings; Con Edison; and Pendleton/American Indian College Fund. This program series has also been supported by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
