Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival celebrates 15 years of Indigenous cinema
The 15th annual Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival kicks off this week, with an array of Canadian and international films made by Indigenous filmmakers screening for the first time in the city.
"I think [the festival] is important because people have to understand us. We want to tell our stories from our perspective," said festival organizer and documentary filmmaker Coleen Rajotte.
The festival has come a long way since it was first launched 15 years ago.
