Reporting from the Field: ImagineNative Indigenous Film Festival in Full-Swing at the TIFF Bell Lightbox!

Posted by Zoë Barrett-Wood

Hi everyone!

Zoe here, reporting on the world’s largest all-indigenous film and multimedia festival. I’ve volunteered at ImagineNative for the past three years, and every year I am blown away by the talent. I just finished my first volunteer shift, helping out with the short documentary pitch competition and the short drama pitch competition.

Much of my time was spent signing in the jury, welcoming attendees, and signing people up for “micro-meetings” (where new and aspiring filmmakers get to chat one-on-one with established film producers, buyers, and other industry professionals). However, I also sat in on segments of the competitions where I heard pitches about films ranging from a documentary making connections between the holocaust and the oppression and abuse of indigenous people in Canada, to a sci-fi drama set in a future of depleted environmental resources, to a mockumentary about a washed up child actor.
