DECOLONIZING FRAMES aims to unravel narratives beyond the confines of North-American and European perspectives, celebrating the alternative knowledge and identities of indigenous and native people all over the world. 

Nowadays we are living the consequences of colonialism in all its aspects: racism, patriarchy, cultural, economical and political capitalism and hegemony. DF seeks to address and dismantle these legacies by shedding light on alternative narratives. Through short films, we aim to disrupt the status quo, encouraging a reevaluation of societal norms and fostering appreciation for diverse knowledge systems and ways of life.

Through the powerful medium of short films, we encourage producers to showcase the richness of cultures and ways of living, contributing to a collective understanding of decolonial perspectives. 

As Freya Schiwy states, “videomakers are then also involved in what might be called a “knowledge revolution”, an effort at decolonizing the mind”.

The inaugural edition of DECOLONIZING FRAMES will be held in 2024 in Turin and Milan (Italy)
