Join our international screen leaders in a discussion that will explore the idea of Story Sovereignty and examine the age-old question: who gets to tell Indigenous stories and why? 

Panellists include activist, artist and actor Tāme Iti; director Nina Nawalowalo; filmmaker Matthias Luafutu and rapper Malo Luafutu (a.k.a. Scribe), sons of Fa’amoana Luafutu and cast members of A Boy Called Piano; and screenwriter Boyd Quakawoot. The panel will be moderated by screen creative, actor and BIRRARANGGA Artistic Director Tony Briggs.  
The NFSA is proud to partner with BIRRARANGGA Film Festival, celebrating Global Indigenous Films that explore the curatorial themes of ‘strength, resilience and the environment’. First Nations relationships to the image as a form of expression, particularly in Australia, is connected to thousands of years of cultural practices. Curated by Wurundjeri (Woiwurrung)/Yorta Yorta screen creative and actor Tony Briggs, BIRRARANGGA honours that history and acknowledges the contemporary currency of the moving image, of film, as an expression of the human experience in relation to our natural surroundings.
