A virtual event happening on June 30th from the comfort of home, please join us as we celebrate Indigenous Film. Links will be provided to watch the following 3 short films for everyone to enjoy as we wrap up the month long celebrations across Canada.

Women Dress -Pre-contact, a Two Spirit person named Woman Dress travels the Plains, gathering and sharing stories. Featuring archival images and dramatized re-enactments, this film shares a Cuthand family oral story, honouring and respecting Woman Dress without imposing colonial binaries on them. Directed by Thirza Cuthand.

Inuk shop – Inuit filmmaker Jobie Weetaluktuk mixes archival and new footage to make a statement about the appropriation of his culture throughout history.

Lake – Cree director Alexandra Lazarowich riffs off classic verité cinema to craft a contemporary portrait of Métis women net fishing in Northern Alberta.
