James, Megan

“Megan James is a storyteller.

The Diné filmmaker recently picked up two awards from the Film Prize Junior New Mexico.

James won for the film, “Deprived,” which picked up best High School Drama and High School Grand Prize awards.

“This program has allowed me to have a voice,” James says. “The Film Prize experience these last two years has helped me grow into a more experienced, established and effective filmmaker. I will continue to fight to have Indigenous people represented in a positive and accurate way in the film industry.”

James’ film was one of the nearly two dozen films awarded at the Film Prize Junior New Mexico, which was held at the Albuquerque Convention Center.” – Albuquerque Journal
