The work of Native American filmmakers will be featured at the NatiVisions Film Festival, which will be held Oct. 3 through Oct. 5 at the BlueWater Cinemas in Parker.

At their page on the Film Freeway website, the NatiVisions Film Festival is described this way:

“The NatiVisions Film Festival offers Native American actors, filmmakers, writers, directors an opportunity to present their current work. Over the past 15 years we have created a very successful festival to present to the area reaching people throughout the United States.

Included every year, several Native-made movies that feature Q&A’s with Native American filmmakers.

Film screening are free and open to all.

Screenings are held at the Bluewater Cinemas located in the Bluewater Resort & Casino. Along the Colorado River.”

A featured attraction at this year’s festival will be the television series, “Blackwater, the Series.” The program features Kyla Garcia as Birdie Blackwater, a Native American country singer who is court-ordered to spend 180 days in a rehab facility for wellness therapy after 10 years of alcohol abuse. The presentation will include visits from three of the show’s stars, Garica, Carolina Hoyos, and Loren Anthony. They will be around for a question and answer session after the presentation.

The presentation of “Blackwater, the Series” will be at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5.

The awards ceremony will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 5 at the River’s Edge Cantina. For more information, call 928-669-7000 or 888-243-3360.
