GFF is proud to present a special Indigenous Horror Focus at GFF 2021, curated by guest programmer Daina Warren. This lineup shines a spotlight on a growing sub-genre of horror - films that explore Indigenous themes and historical traumas through the horror genre, as made by Indigenous filmmakers.  Daina Warren, the current Director of Urban Shaman Gallery, has selected five films, both feature length and shorts, that span a spectrum of themes and moods of horror, infused with Indigenous perspectives.Available only on GFF On Demand, July 12-25, 2021. Generously sponsored by MB150.

After the film, don't forget to rank the film using the 5 Stars found below the video container! The top-ranked film as chosen by our audience will win GFF's coveted Best of Fest Audience Choice Award, sponsored by the Winnipeg Free Press!

This film is an exploration into the sites of loss where Indigenous men were dropped off and left to the elements during the winter months by police officers on the outskirts of Saskatoon on notorious Moonlight Drives or Starlight Tours.
