Call for Submissions: imagineNATIVE 2021

Hosted by imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival

We are proud to announce that our Call for Submissions for the 2021 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is now open! We are accepting Film + Video, Digital + Interactive, and Audio works for our Festival, which will take place October 19 - 24, 2021.

The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous festival showcasing film, video, audio, and digital + interactive media made by Indigenous screen-content creators. The Festival presents compelling and distinctive works from Canada and around the globe, reflecting the diversity of Indigenous nations and illustrating the vitality and dynamism of Indigenous arts, perspectives, and cultures in contemporary media.

As an Indigenous-led and Indigenous artist-centred organization, we support the artistic visions and perspectives of Indigenous Artists working in film and media arts in an inclusive and professional manner. As identified in our mission statement, we are committed to a greater understanding by audiences of Indigenous peoples, cultures, and artistic expressions. Therefore, works do not need to have overt Indigenous content or themes and can be productions made at all budget levels. We strive to represent a variety of ideas, themes, and genres, in addition to a diversity of Indigenous languages, nations, and cultures.

Submissions are due Monday, May 31, 2021 at 11:59 PM ET.
