The Haudenosaunee Micro-Short film Program (HMSFP) creates a benchmark for supporting marginalized creators by honoring their values, goals and ideas by developing programming with them, not for them. HMSFP, now in its second year, builds trust and develops a new model of engaging underrepresented voices through direct collaboration.
The Haudenosaunee Micro Short Film Program (HMSFP) continues in its second year at the Burchfield Penney Arts Center on September 3, 2022 at 1:00 pm. The Haudenosaunee Micro-Short Film Program, curated by Seneca filmmaker Terry J. Jones, features a collection of short films created by Haudenosaunee filmmakers from all over Turtle Island (North America and Canada) followed by a Haudenosaunee filmmaker panel discussion and audience Q&A.
