As part of the flurry of new streaming services competing for our eyeballs, FanForce TV joined the online viewing fold during the COVID-19 pandemic — with the pay-per-view platform not only screening movies, but pairing them with virtual Q&A sessions as well. That's a point of difference all year round, but the service also goes the extra mile for National Reconciliation Week, which is when it hosts the Virtual Indigenous Film Festival.

In 2022, that'll take place between Thursday, May 26–Monday, May 30, all solely online. The returning event will showcase five titles: the first two episodes of TV series Firebite; films My Name is Gulpilil, Off Country and Wash My Soul in the River's Flow; plus shorts by up-and-coming First Nations talent.

That means you can watch your way through an array of Aussie content focused on Indigenous stories, spanning both dramas and documentaries — and exploring race relations in the process.

Sessions will also feature guest speakers, with filmmakers Tanith-Glynn-Maloney, Molly Reynolds and John Harvey among those doing the chatting.

And, viewers can tune in on a film-by-film basis, or buy an all-access pass to tune into everything.
