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!
