Native American Unscripted Initiative

The Native American Unscripted Initiative is designed to support and spotlight Native American documentary filmmakers. With the incredible success of the many narrative writing programs, this endeavor offers similar exposure, further access and new opportunities for Native American filmmakers.

With support from Comcast NBCUniversal, A+E Networks, CNN, Turner Sports, YAHOO and the Cherokee Nation Film Office, the Native American Media Alliance has introduced the Native American Unscripted Workshop for emerging and seasoned indigenous documentary filmmakers seeking to explore outlets for their current and upcoming projects.

In 2020, we launched the Native American Unscripted Panel to provide additional information from lifestyle, journalism and sports brands that included ESPN, CNN and Bravo. Every year, we will showcase new guest panelists to provide new opportunities in the unscripted world. Check out last year’s panel here!
