Festival of Remote Australian Indigenous Moving Image
The creativity, talent and richness of remote and very remote Indigenous media makers will be showcased at the inaugural Festival of Remote Australian Indigenous Moving Image, conducted by ICTV.
More than 40 content makers from around remote Australia will share knowledge, experience and showcase their works during the four days of FRAIM in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) from May 13-16 2019 .
As well as invitation only workshops, where participants will have the opportunity to hone
their creative and practical skills, the Festival features two nights of screening videos in
competition for the biennial ICTV video awards which are open to the public.
ICTV General Manager Rita Cattoni said FRAIM was conceived to celebrate and support
Indigenous video makers living in remote areas who are producing content for ICTV.
“The content we program on ICTV shows the diversity of stories and media talent there is in remote and very remote Australia,” Ms Cattoni said.
“One of ICTV’s aims is to support and develop Indigenous video makers working in remote regions, so we designed FRAIM in consultation with our content makers to incorporate skills development, peer-to-peer sharing and other opportunities not readily available in isolated areas.
“A program of videos in-competition for the ICTV video awards will be held over two nights of outdoor screening.
“FRAIM will culminate in the awards which celebrate the very best of content on ICTV.”
The public outdoor screenings on May 14 and 15 are free but attendees are asked to register at fraim.ictv.com.au.
The ICTV Video Awards, MC’d by award-winning journalist and documentary maker Pascoe Braun, will be broadcast live on ICTV Channel 601 and on-line direct from Alice Springs Cinema on Thursday, May 16.
