TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A University of Arizona filmmaker is on her way to share her work with the world. 

Stacy Howard's short movie is about to be shown in three-major film festivals. Her film is about a little girl who gets suspended from school and gets sent to live with her Navajo grandmother. 

Since beginning the project, Howard knew she wanted to make a film showcasing Arizona Indian culture.

"I'm very lucky that my film got selected," said Howard. "In part of my class I was the native voice."

The film airs next week in Toronto, Canada.
