RICHMOND, Va.-- The third annual Pocahontas Reframed “Storytellers” Film Festival presents more than 20-films by and about Native people showing at the historic Byrd Theatre and other venues. Films feature documentaries, short films, animated and feature-length narrative films, special events, and performances. Brad Brown, Festival Director explains the festival’s title: “Pocahontas is a very recognizable name obviously, reframed basically means that we’re trying to reframe the conversation about native Americans. We’re basically trying to reclaim native truth and so a lot of these films you’ll never see in most theaters or on tv.”
$20 Tickets can be purchased online, or at the ticket booth at the Byrd Theatre during the festival. The ticket gives access to all events at the Byrd Theatre, including 20+ films, musical performances, and the Cherokee Warriors performance.
$50 VIP Pass can only be purchased online.
