So this is one of my favourite times of year - when some of the brightest and best talent in the Native film industry strut their awesomeness at one of Canada’s largest Aboriginal film festivals, imagineNATIVE:
“The creative voices of Aboriginal women will be among those heard loudly and clearly at the 9th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, which runs in Toronto from Wednesday, October 15th until Sunday, October 19th, 2008. imagineNATIVE is pleased to announce and welcome their presenting sponsor CTVglobemedia.
The festival, which annually spotlights Aboriginal filmmakers and media artists from across the Indigenous spectrum, is proud to feature this year’s “Indian Jane” marketing campaign, its latest trenchant and clever parody of mainstream Hollywood imagemaking. And the showcase of more than 100 works by Indigenous people at the forefront of innovation in film, video, radio and new media, will lead with the women’s side of the story of Indigenous survival and evolution of identity.”
Be sure to also check out the amazing Youth Activities and Youth Program on October 16th!
Be there…or be square! But we’ll still love you if you’re square =)
