Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities (Texas A & M University-Commerce) welcomes submissions of substantive interviews with new Native American/Indigenous filmmakers/directors/producers for a special issue that will include a dvd containing shorts or clips from work by those interviewed. Post Script encourages original interviews in this area coming from a Native perspective on film and focusing on Native and Indigenous film of North America. We are seeking work from filmmakers, scholars and academics, curators, teachers and the like.
Interviews with Native filmmakers may focus on:

• Group responses by those working on a particular Native film project;
• Issues surrounding audience, community, aesthetics, storytelling, project focus, response; to the mainstream industry, etc.
Interviews should be substantive and include:

• Is edited for continuity and ease of reading;
• Includes resources for the readers to access work by those interviewed; and
• Accompanying clips or short films to be included on the dvd.
