INDIGENOUS 150+ IS A FILM AND CONVERSATION SERIES THAT PUTS INDIGENOUS VOICES CENTRE STAGE. IT IS A RESPONSE TO THE TRC CALLS TO ACTION.TO EDUCATE CANADIANS AND CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SHARED EXPERIENCES.
Building on the Aabiziingwashi (WideAwake) initiative by Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), National Film Board (NFB) of Canada, APTN, and imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, INDIGENOUS 150+ is inviting businesses and cities to sponsor INDIGENOUS 150+ events in their communities as a way to educate Canadians, build relations and connect communities. Each event shines a light on First Nations, Inuit and Métis culture, history and teachings and will be followed by an Indigenous-led conversation with local partners.
We are working with independent filmmakers as well as the NFB to offer an exciting, selection of stories and films from across the country. INDIGENOUS 150+ is a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls To Action and we aim to inspire all Canadians and businesses to find a way to respond in their own unique way.
Join us in building a rich and vibrant future.
The initiative is underway with a number of outdoor screenings and signature events in municipalities across the country.
