One Heart Native Arts & Film Festival opens today

Dan Webster

Note: This post has been updated to reflect the films opening/not opening on Friday at the Magic Lantern Theatre.

It was only fitting that I should receive an email on Monday regarding the One Heart Native Arts & Film Festival, which will take place today through Saturday.

Monday, of course, was Indigenous People’s Day (which some people still refer to as Columbus Day).

The festival is returning this year with in-person events slated for Magic Lantern Theatre, CMTV of Spokane and the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture. Click here to get a full schedule of events, plus information about how to buy tickets.

I’ll just list a couple of film events. One is the documentary feature “Love and Fury,” which will screen at 7:39 p.m. both Friday and Saturday at the Magic Lantern. The second is a Short Films Program, which will screen at 4 p.m on Saturday at the Lantern.

A panel discussion, moderated by Julie Keefe, will follow Friday’s documentary screening with artists featured in the film. Among the panelists will be Micah P. Hinson, Warren Realrider and members of the punk band Weedrat.

And, BTW, one movie that was initially scheduled to open at the Lantern this coming weekend – “Hard Luck Love Song” – will now open on Oct. 22. The documentary "The Velvet Underground" will open as slated.
