(June 18, 2020 – Toronto, ON) It was Big News when it first started to happen. It is now routine but no less important. Another large international film festival is looking ahead and acting with an abundance of caution in announcing a shift from a traditional event to an online experience.

The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous festival showcasing film, video, audio, and digital + interactive media made by Indigenous screen-content creators.

“With the community as a priority, the 2020 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival will be guided by Indigenous practices of gifting and reciprocity. To gift is an act of acknowledgement,” said Niki Little, Artistic Director. “It comes with notions of collective responsibility and opportunities to name relationships between nations.”

The 21st Annual Festival will move online from October 20 – 25, 2020. This six-day online gathering will feature over 100 Indigenous artists from all over the world with an offering of live screenings, featured discussions, interactive engagements, live pitches, performances, virtual exhibitions and other special events.

Details will be added and information update on the imagineNATIVE website.
