The Indigenous Film Festival Skábmagovat will be held January 27-30, 2022 in Inari and as an online festival. The festival offers an arena for indigenous films, unforgettable cinematic experiences for many tastes and a natural meeting place for different cultures. At the festival, indigenous films can be watched every day from morning to night, in special performance venues in an enveloped landscape.

The festival is organized by the Sámi Art Support Association in close cooperation with the Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos. Skábmagovat is the oldest Sámi film festival and will be held in 2022 for the 24th time. It also makes the festival one of the oldest indigenous film festivals in the world. Skábmagovat has established its place and audience, which includes both film lovers and international film makers.

At the heart of the festival are, of course, films by indigenous people and especially Sámi authors. In addition to the film program, the festival’s side events, such as workshops, discussions and concerts, also offer experiences. In connection with the festival, a day for children and young people has also traditionally been organized for kindergartens and school children in the surrounding areas.
