Navajo Student’s Film Premieres at 2015 White House Film Festival

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown March 29th, 2015 Last Updated on: March 29th, 2015

More than 1,500 film submissions from K-12 students were submitted to the 2015 White House Film Festival. 15 lucky winners were chosen for the festival and one was from a young Navajo filmmaker from Arizona named Keanu Jones.

Watch Keanu's interview about his film and the festival with Cronkite News Online:

This year's theme was “The Impact of Giving Back.” In Keanu's film he showcases Giving Back The Navajo Way.

Congratulations Keanu! Hopefully the film inspires more people to speak for their elders and future generations to come.
