The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival strives to provide an accessible environment and positive festival experience for all patrons. We are committed to developing and maintaining Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards via the Path to 2025. All staff and volunteers have completed the AODA online training for more awareness and are attentive to our patrons’ needs. 

With the Festival returning online this year, we are committed to providing an accessible experience to audience members of all abilities. This has given us an opportunity to test some new formats online, all with multiple forms of access in mind. Watch our social media and website for more details about tickets, programs, and conversations about how it will all work. 

imagineNATIVE is committed to the following: 

  1. Closed captioning and/or English subtitles and audio description available for most of the films and videos. 
  2. Transcripts available for all audio works and podcasts. 
  3. Most panel discussions and Q&As supported with Open Captions, ASL and/or Live Captioning (CART)

If you have questions about accessibility and access needs at imagineNATIVE, please contact Katarina Ziervogel at
