The tasks of archaeology and cultural preservation is to discover and preserve our shared heritage. In the pre-Covid time, the Center would periodically hold an Archaeology Film Festival, and occasionally a Native American Film Festival. With our new venue and additional staff resources it has been decided to once again offer archaeology and Native American films. The Center will host the Storytellers Cinema: Showcasing Archaeology and Indigenous Films every November, in association with Native American Heritage Month. 

The aim of the Storytellers Cinema is to present archaeology and Indigenous history to the general public through films made by archaeologists and Indigenous people, assuring the promotion and the spreading of these films. The Cinema offers a broad range and varied programs featuring films of differing lengths focusing on different periods and themes, but all with one thing in common: to discover and preserve our shared heritage.
