Produced during the inaugural Alaska Native Filmmakers Intensive, Stories for Climate Justice presents a selection of films examining how Indigenous Alaskans are responding to the impacts of climate change on their homelands and communities.

The Alaska Native Filmmakers Intensive, a partnership between Native Movement and the University of Alaska Fairbanks Department of Theatre and Film, aims to expand access for Alaska Native creatives in digital media production.

The 2021 session theme of “Stories for Climate Justice” encouraged participants to reflect on how they adapt to a changing climate and fight to protect the communities that they love. In addition to technical training and narrative development, participants learned about climate justice, action, and advocacy.
