While discussing how to release AWAKE and continue the spirit of Standing Rock, Fox and co-Directors Myron Dewey and James Spione decided that the best way to contribute to the movement sparked by Standing Rock was to start an Indigenous Media Fund to assist young Native American journalists and filmmakers with their current and future projects.
We anticipate that the Indigenous Media Fund will support new short pieces, feature films, articles and the hiring key PR reps for Indigenous causes. The Fund’s mission is to support indigenous voices in the media and to court mainstream media to cover more Indigenous and environmental issues.
In the past the film has been available through various streaming networks and live event screenings around the world. In light of the current health emergency we have decided to make AWAKE, A Dream From Standing Rock available for free on our website WWW.AWAKETHEFILM.ORG. Indigenous communities around the world have historically been hardest hit and grossly under served during times of global crisis and emergency.
Now more than ever it is important to support the efforts of young indigenous journalists, film makers, activists and story tellers around the world.
We thank you for your support!
Love and solidarity,
The Awake Team
