Sapaatq'ayn Cinema Native American Film Festival at the University of Idaho has been an annual showcase for Native Cinema on the Palouse since 2003. All films are presented at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in downtown Moscow, Idaho.

The word Sapaatq'ayn (suh-pot-kine) in the language of the Nimi'ipuu (Nez Perce) means "to display" or "a motion picture."

Sapaatq'ayn Cinema screens new and recently released documentary and feature films made by and about Native peoples with the mission of making contemporary Native experience visible and meaningful to a broad audience. Sapaatq’ayn Cinema is sponsored by the University of Idaho American Indian Studies Program.
