Check out this short video put together by the documentary team at last year's National Remote Indigenous Media Festival. 

The festival sees remote Indigenous stations working locally and collaboratively to produce a 5 day program with skills workshops, roundtables, video screenings, live radio and TV coverage, music and cultural events. 

The 2015 Festival was hosted by Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA) in partnership with PAW Media and Communications and the Lajamanu community with key partner Indigenous Community Television. 

This year's National Remote Indigenous Media Festival will be held in the community of Yirrkala in the Northern Territory from 26 - 30 September 2016. This year, the festival is hosted by IRCA in partnership with TEABBA.
