DPAE in English !

Created in 2008, De la Plume à l’Ecran (From the Feather to the Screen), is a French non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and distribution of Indigenous cinema, thus supporting Indigenous art and the right to self-determination for Indigenous peoples.
De la Plume à l’Ecran aims at fighting stereotypes regarding Indigenous peoples mostly found in films and in mainstream media.

Our main activity is the Festival Ciné Alter’Natif, the only film festival in western Europe entirely dedicated to films directed/produced by Native filmmakers from the Americas. The Festival Ciné Alter’Natif was created in 2009 in Nantes (Brittany) and is now also held in Paris. It has become the key national event for anyone who wishes to enjoy Indigenous-made art in all its genres and forms of expression (fiction, documentary, experimental, animation...).

De la Plume à l’Ecran also :

  • organizes screenings & Q&A on Indigenous issues
  • curates art exhibition promoting Indigenous artists
  • distributes Indigenous films in France (such as RUMBLE : The Indians who Rocked the World, Historias de la Sierra Madre, RISE....)
  • curates Indigenous films for several independant film festivals in France and acts as an advisor on Indigenous films for institutions
  • hosts a quaterly radio show on Indigenous cinema called "Ciné Alter’Natif" on Jet FM, a non-profit French radio
  • runs a resource center on Indigenous cinema
  • publishes the C@mérindien, a quarterly magazine on Indigenous cinema...
