From epic survival thrillers to inspiring true stories and innovative shorts, the Winda Film Festival returns for its fourth year to celebrate trailblazing Indigenous filmmakers and share the universal stories of Indigenous nations

The 2019 Festival will screen six brand new full length features, five thought-provoking documentaries, as well as a witty Australian TV series and a jam-packed line-up of stellar shorts from 16 countries across the globe.

Program highlights include: Australian director Shirleen Campbell’s inspiring debut documentary Not Just Numbers, about a group of Indigenous women’s mission to stop family violence in their communities; and award-winning Russian producer Sardaana Savvina’s Kylyk Khomus: Cursed Harp, a surreal drama about a teacher whose world is turned upside down when her niece unexpectedly arrives on her doorstep after an accident.

The program also features a stellar selection of local and international shorts: from Australian director Michael Bonner’s What Do You See, the empowering story of a trans woman’s fight against constrictive stereotypes; to Ties That Bind (Sydney Film Festival: 2019), a powerful drama about a young Indigenous man’s experiences of police prejudice and turbulent family life; and Hinekura, a New Zealand coming of age story about a Maori girl’s transition from naïve child to protector of her people.
