We are proud to announce that our Call for Submissions for the 2022 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is now open!

Submissions will remain open until Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. We are accepting Film + Video, Digital + Interactive, and Audio works for our Festival, which will take place October 18-29, 2022. The 23rd annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival will take place in-person at the TIFF Bell Lightbox from October 18-23, 2022, and move to our online streaming and iNdigital Space platforms from October 23-29, 2022.

The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous Festival of its kind. The Festival is imagineNATIVE’s primary event hosted annually every October in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. At our Festival, we present Artistic and Industry programming showcasing Film + Video, Digital + Interactive, and Audio media work created by Indigenous artists (directors, producers, writers, designers) at all levels of experience. Since 2020, imagineNATIVE has further moved into digital and hybrid presentations of these works.

As an Indigenous-led and Indigenous artist-centred organization, we support the artistic visions and perspectives of Indigenous artists working in film and media arts in an inclusive and professional manner. As identified in our mission statement, we are committed to a greater understanding by audiences of Indigenous peoples, cultures, and artistic expressions. Works are therefore not required to have overt Indigenous content or themes, and can be productions made at all budget levels. We strive to represent a variety of ideas, themes, and genres, in addition to a diversity of Indigenous languages, nations, and cultures.

We are excited to announce that our Festival submissions will now take place using FilmFreeway! Submissions close Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. Please review our updated 2022 Festival Artistic Policy and our Year-Round Artistic Policy before submitting. For more information, please contact submissions@imagineNATIVE.org.
