imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival on Tour

November 7 & 8, 2017
Queen's Square Gallery


The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous film festival and one of Canada’s most successful Indigenous-run arts organizations. Our Tour is one of our most important projects and it’s our goal to ensure that Indigenous people in Canada have access to films and media art made by Indigenous artists. Indigenous people are often unrepresented or misrepresented in mainstream media including film and television. It is incredibly empowering to see self-determined representations of Indigenous people made by Indigenous people.

Tuesday, November 7, 6:30 - 9:00pm
Screening of Walking in Two Worlds – program of short films followed by an artist talk.
Hear Danis Goulet speak about her extensive work in film including her motivation and process in creating the short film, Wapawekka. Learn about her first experience in 360 storytelling from concept to production and completion of The Hunt, filmed on Six Nations, and how Indigenous forms of storytelling and culture can take advantage of this new technology.

Wednesday, November 8, 11:00am – 8:00pm
