GREAT PLAINS FILM FESTIVAL 2003
August 1 - 14
The Great Plains Film Festival is a biennial regional venue for independent film/video artists working in the U.S. and Canadian heartland. We are committed to providing a showcase for presenting work to the public as well as to potential distributors and exhibitors from throughout the region and the nation. The Festival is nurturing a better understanding and a greater awareness of the media arts being produced in this region in terms of their aesthetic, cultural, and social values. In addition, the festival encourages and promotes film/video which accentuates and enhances appreciation of our nation's extraordinary multicultural diversity and conveys the rich vibrancy of our cultural heritage. Through presentation of panel discussions and special appearances by selected film/video makers, the festival provides a forum for artists and audience to meet. Augmenting the competitive segment of the festival will be a tribute, The Mary Riepma Ross Award, to an established film or video artist whose roots or artistic concerns are grounded in the Great Plains region and culture, who will attend the festival. Previous winners include Peter Fonda, Joan Micklin Silver, Sandy Dennis, James Coburn, John Beasley, Norman Geske, and Alexander Payne. The competition screenings will also be complemented by a special selection of films and videos by, for, and about Latino peoples, conceived to honor the richness of Latino culture by celebrating the strength of the Latino spirit and providing positive images of Latino peoples, with the hopes of building bridges of understanding amongst the diverse cultures extant in the Great Plains. This entertaining and enlightening festival is a positive cultural asset for this region, providing its audience with the opportunity to experience works of art which reflect the richness and diversity of life on the Great Plains.
