Building on the Aabiziingwashi (WideAwake) initiative by the National Film Board (NFB) of Canada, APTN, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, Good Influence Films is inviting businesses to screen award-winning Indigenous films for their employees and guests as a way to put Indigenous voices at the centre of Canada 150. Good Influence films is helping to foster respectful commemorations and facilitate post-screening discussions led by Indigenous community leaders in partnership with First Peoples Group (

We are working with the NFB as well as independent filmmakers to offer an exciting, diverse and wide selection of films and stories for businesses and communities to choose from. INDIGENOUS 150+ is a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls To Action and we aim to inspire other companies to find their own way to respond through this film and conversation series.

Help keep this initiative going by donating what you can. Any amount will help and we graciously thank you for your contribution.

Stay informed and up to date on upcoming screenings, media relations, and future events!

If you’d like to book or sponsor an INDIGENOUS 150+ screening or event for your business or community please send us a note with your contact details and a few details and we will be in touch.
