Nunga Screen returns to Victor Harbor with a series of films connecting communities through strong, unique stories.

The short film showcase is held annually on Reconciliation Week across South Australia and is produced by Country Arts SA.

Many of this year's films present strong women connecting with their culture, forging collective pathways to healing, truth and harmony for themselves and for future generations.

It is a collection of films put together to preserve and present stories for current generations and beyond.

Nunga Screen programmer, Ngarrindjeri man Josh Trevorrow, said it was important to champion more First Nations talent, in both mainstream/commercial projects as well as through uniquely Indigenous stories.

"This year's program showcases a wide variety of scripted and un-scripted content, unique and relevant with a strong voice and depth of character," he said.

Nunga Screen is showing at the Victa Cinema this Thursday (May 27) with screenings at 2pm and 7pm.

Free bookings can be made at the door or phone 8552 1325.
