NITV, SBS launches Reconciliation Film Club.
Organisations can host screenings of Indigenous documentaries through a new initiative by NITV & SBS.
Organisations can host screenings of Indigenous documentaries following the launch of the Reconciliation Film Club by NITV, SBS and Reconciliation Australia.
The online initiative launches with NITV commissioned films, Erica Glynn’s In My Own Words, Trisha Morton-Thomas’ Occupation: Native, Tyson Mowarin’s Connection to Country and Steven McGregor’s Servant or Slave (pictured). It includes downloadable screening kits, discussion guides and feature articles.
More documentaries will be added, including Warwick Thornton’s We Don’t Need a Map.
NITV Channel Manager, Tanya Orman said, “These compelling NITV documentary films were not created to be watched just once, but were commissioned as resource tools which address issues on cultural heritage, national identity, justice and equality.
“We are thrilled to engage with Reconciliation Australia to launch the Reconciliation Film Club and to bring a greater understanding of Indigenous people’s perspectives to organisations across Australia.”
“The Film Club offers RAP partners an opportunity to further engage their staff in cultural learning and build respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures,” said Reconciliation Australia’s General Manager, RAPs Darryl Monaghan.
“I hope all the organisations we work with, and others, take up this opportunity to explore the Film Club’s selection of great, contemporary Indigenous Australian films.”
Screenings start at $99 for less than 50 people and non-profit groups.
