WELCOME TO THE

imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival

October 19 – 24, 2021!

The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is an international hub for the presentation and celebration of Indigenous media art. We are considered Canada’s premier Indigenous media arts event and are the largest festival of our kind in the world. Founded in 1998, in part as a response to lack of self-representation (with the vast majority of films about Indigenous peoples being made by non-Indigenous filmmakers), imagineNATIVE plays a crucial role in providing platforms for Indigenous artists to reclaim their voices and express their perspectives. We are excited to welcome you to enjoy 6 days of screenings, special events, networking opportunities, Industry activities, and so much more! Welcome to the Festival!

We at imagineNATIVE acknowledge that this land located on present-day Tkaronto (Toronto) is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We acknowledge the Dish With One Spoon covenant, a treaty whose spirit is one based in collective stewardship and reciprocity. We take the spirit of this covenant to the core of our operations as we bring artists and audiences from many nations across the globe together through our various initiatives and activities.

Please take a moment to think of the land you currently reside upon, wherever you may be, and  acknowledge those who went before and those yet to come.
