Used by Indigenous communities from coast to coast to coast, Skoden is a unifying word that transcends a single language. Skoden is slang for “let's go then”. It’s an attitude and a battle cry and we’ve decided to take it to heart.
Held within the heart of Musqueam, Sḵwxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh territories, Skoden is a one day film festival, featuring the works of British Columbia based Indigenous filmmakers and talent. Started in 2019 by two SFU Film students at The School for Contemporary Arts, Carr Sappier (Wolastoqiyik) and Grace Mathisen, the festival was created to showcase Indigenous filmmakers and to Indigenize the SFU community. Festival-goers will be able to attend two short film programs and special events, celebrating Indigenous voices and cultivating more active discussions about reconciliation.

Presented by the SCA with the support of the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology.
