In partnership with the American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO), DSFF has launched a Monthly Indigenous Film Series. Free Wednesday night screenings happen once a month at Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center from November-April.


Operating support for The Duluth Superior Film Festival is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

RETURN: Native American Women Reclaim Foodways for Health and Spirit features charismatic Roxanne Swentzell from Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico whose efforts to reclaim ancient foodways are echoed across the continent by Tlingit, Muckleshoot, Oglala Sioux, Menominee, and Seneca women.  At its heart this film is about empowering people to overcome their current circumstances through eating as their ancestors did - nutritiously and locally. RETURN offers an approach to confronting the diabetes epidemic now rampant in Native American communities.
