The Tribal Film Festival, founded and directed by Celia Xavier and co-directed by Mary Aboud, has become one of the country’s most important forums for indigenous film features and shorts, and for screenplays of all genres. In conjunction with TribalTV, the festival hosts 1-4 screenings and script readings each year. The Emergence was recently chosen as the winner in the feature screenplay category for this August’s event in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. See: https://www.facebook.com/Tribalfilmf/
