Opening Gala – Short Program: Yellow + Q&A – October 20-22

Live Q&A: October 20th – 9PM

For the first time at imagineNATIVE, the Opening Night Gala features a gathering of international short films, standing together, a shared collective filling the screen seeping into our personal spaces. The fluidity of the work speaks to the artful nuance of Indigenous Cinema. Moving images as a medium of social impact, intellectual inquiry and deeper understanding of community, culture and worldviews.
Short Program: YELLOW is composed of works created by artists from seven different nations.

Directors: Theola Ross, Jack Steele, Ngariki Ngatae, Banchi Hanuse, Michelle Derosier, Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Alisi Telengut


All pre-recorded events will have the option of closed captions. All on-demand films will have the option of closed captions. The audio works will provide a textual version of transcripts.
