4th World Filmmakers on Nia Tero’s Seedcast
Monday, November 8, 2021
The 4th World Media Lab supports early and mid-career Indigenous filmmakers from around the globe, providing them an immersion into film learning and exploration with residencies at Camden International Film Festival in Maine, Big Sky Documentary Festival in Montana, and here at the Seattle International Film Festival.
In Nia Tero’s newest episode of Seedcast, members of the 2021 4th World cohort—Brit Hensel, Ajuawak Kapashesit, Jared Lank, Erin Lau, Lucía Ortega Toledo, and Theola Ross—share how Indigenous-focused spaces make room for growth, why Native filmmaking is in an interesting moment, and what they envision next for themselves and those following in their footsteps. The lab’s founder Tracy Rector also shares about the generative partnerships that keep the 4th World fellowship going and what inspired the name.
