Bob HicksOur closing night ceremony will take place at the Autry National Center in Griffith Park.  We honor those making a difference in the entertainment industry for the Native American community.  This year we will honor AFI graduate, filmmaker, and community activist Bob Hicks.  More than two decades ago, he wrote, produced and directed the groundbreaking short film Return of the Country.  His film turns the world upside down, depicting the Indians as rulers of America

Mr. Hicks will return from his tribal nation in Eastern Oklahoma to discuss the film, his career and how he sees our community’s future. Return of the Country inspired several new young Native American filmmakers to pursue their own dreams in entertainment.
