Nov 19th, 2017 — The 11th Annual LA SKINS FEST weekend screenings continued at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood. On Sunday, November 19th, the Aids Healthcare Foundation offered a special look at epidemics affecting Native American communities. We screened films that explored HIV/AIDS on the reservations and the Native American LGBTQ experience in the city. Our screening programs continued throughout the day with films focusing on Native American activism, tribal sovereignty, California history and water rights.
Dozens of Native American filmmakers attended the screenings and participated in a Q&A following each screening program. The LA SKINS FEST screened over 50 films that showcased features, documentaries and shorts, representing hundreds of Native American tribes.
Our closing night film, Murder In The Woods, featured actor Danny Trejo and was a sold out event. A lively Q&A followed the screening with filmmakers and cast members. We wrapped the festival with an industry mixer for our filmmakers, sponsors, and community members.
