Four Directions Productions is working to bring Native film to the festival that celebrates the life and work of German author Karl May

Cultural Festival in Germany Presents Unique Opportunity for Native Filmmakers

April 02, 2013

The Karl May Festival, which will take place in Radebeul, Germany, from May 9 to 11, is searching for films made by or about American Indians.

Karl May (1842-1912) was a phenomenally popular German author who wrote stories about the American West. The Karl May Museum in Radebeul is dedicated not only to May's life but also to the Native American cultures that so fascinated him. The Karl May Festival attracts some 30,000 visitors, predominantly Europeans who share May's curiosity about the ways and history of the American Indian.

As guest nation host of the Festival, the Oneida Indian Nation is looking for features, documentaries, and shorts. If you have a finished work and would like to be considered, please submit a DVD before April 8, 2013 to:
