The Virtual Indigenous Film Festival (VIFF) NAIDOC Edition is an annual event that takes place during NAIDOC Week. Our mission is to showcase First Nations stories and voices, and invite inclusive and open discussion throughout this important week.
This year's NAIDOC edition will feature four award-winning Australian films; Araatika: Rise Up!, Off Country, Wash My Soul in the River's Flow and Where the Water Starts. Each of the films will have a Virtual Screening at 1pm and 7pm on their scheduled day.
Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
This year's NAIDOC Week theme encourages us to make a genuine commitment "to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms."
