Building on the Aabiziingwashi (#WideAwake) initiative by TIFF, National Film Board of Canada, APTN, and imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival and other Indigenous festivals across Canada, INDIGENOUS 150+ invites art centres, municipalities, business and levels of government to join us in building a National Indigenous Cinema Screening initiative. We invite art centres and community centres to host events, and for municipalities and businesses to sponsor programming.

Indigenous 150+ is inviting youth leaders to participate in Indigenous led-training, to become Ambassadors and moderate these cross-cultural conversations across Canada. Our goal is to build collaboration, educate Canadians and create shared experiences across the country.

Each event includes an opening ceremony, a film programme and an Indigenous-led conversation with local leaders about the themes highlighted in the films.

INDIGENOUS 150+ is a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls To Action and aim to inspire all Canadians to respond in their own unique way.
