    Instigating Critical and Creative Discourse on Indigenous-Made Cinema

    indigiTALKS Video Essays Now Available Online for Viewing

    (November 15, 2013 – Toronto) This year imagineNATIVE presented its inaugural indigiTALKS Video Essay Project. Entertaining, daring and investigative, three Ontario-based artists and curators took the stage at a TED Talks-style production during imagineNATIVE 2013 to present and discuss their commissioned essays. The three artists/curators – Wanda Nanibush, Ariel Smith and Rachelle Dickenson - were challenged to initiate new theses about Indigenous-created film and video works, stimulating and contributing to the much-needed discourse surrounding artistic and cultural themes found in Indigenous-made film and video.

    Trade Marks
    On until November 23
    Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art
    401 Richmond Street West, Suite 124

    Trade Marks presents a new generation of Indigenous artists who, through newly commissioned photographic, video and audio works, challenge working assumptions of who they are. The exhibition contributes to the recently revived conversation on what it is to be Indigenous in Canada today. It also considers how these artists have responded to the imposition of Western systems of classification on non-Western arts and how their artistic practices have been informed by methodologies of decolonization. Curated by Betty Julian, artists include Keesic Douglas, Nigit'stil Norbert, Bear Witness and Meryl McMaster.

    imagineNATIVE Releases Study on Indigenous Feature Film Production

    Indigenous Feature Film Production in Canada: A National and International Perspective Illustrates Growth Potential of Sector

    To read the full report, please click HERE.

    Toronto, 15 October 2013 – A new study examines the current state of Indigenous feature film production in Canada and demonstrates the potential for growth in this burgeoning sector of the nation’s film industry. Indigenous Feature Film Production in Canada: A National and International Perspective focuses primarily on dramatic feature film production during the five-year period to 2012.

    This report documents the rise of Indigenous cinema worldwide and examines Canada’s public funding landscape, identifying barriers and significant opportunities for Aboriginal content creators in Canada.

    Commissioned by the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, this report was researched and written by consultants Danis Goulet and Kerry Swanson. Funding was provided by the Ontario Media Development Corporation’s (OMDC) Research Grant Program and Telefilm Canada.

    “We are at the threshold of something incredible,” says Jason Ryle, Executive Director of imagineNATIVE. “This report illustrates the great potential that exists throughout the country to tell stories that are uniquely Indigenous and uniquely Canadian. I extend my thanks to the artists and industry professionals who were interviewed for this study, and to our funding partners who made this report possible.”

    The powerfully evocative Mystery Road sizzles hotter than the Australian sun. Jay – a police detective (played masterfully by Aaron Pedersen) – returns to his rural hometown and begins working on his first ever homicide case (the death of a teenaged girl).  Throughout his investigation, cooperation from the locals and, even more puzzling, from his own police force, is proving difficult. As if that wasn’t burden enough, his own daughter won’t speak to him and his estranged wife has yet to quell a demon that, at one time, had also held Jay in its grip. Set against the beautifully stark and lonely Australian Outback, Mystery Road moves with precision and intensity as it drives the audience to the film’s kinetic climax. Compelling writing and subtly nuanced performances breathe life into a world of shadows where it’s hard not to ask the question: ‘Whom can you trust on Mystery Road?’ Featuring performances by Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the RingsThe Matrix) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood).

    14th Annual
    imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival
    Where Artists are Heroes!


    October 16 - 20, 2013
    Presenting Sponsor: Bell Media

    The 14th annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, running October 16-20, 2013, returns to Toronto this fall to host the world’s largest festival of Indigenous film and media arts. The Festival has announced 101 films, including documentaries, features and shorts, and proudly presents a program dominated by female filmmakers with more than half the screening works at the Festival made by women, a noteworthy representation.

    http://gallery.mailchimp.com/653153ae841fd11de66ad181a/images/transparent.gif

    Meanwhile, with TIFF premieres of both Jennifer Podemski’s indie drama Empire of Dirt and Jeff Barnaby’s debut feature film, Rhymes for Young Ghouls, the Canadian Indigenous presence at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival did not go unnoticed. With both of these films, and 99 more, screening at this year’s imagineNATIVE Festival, Aboriginal art will idle no more with increased presence at the world’s most foremost festivals.  

    The 14th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival kicks off at 2pm on Wednesday, October 16 with a Welcome Gathering at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, co-presented by Miziwe Biik Aboriginal Employment and Training and TD Bank Group. FREE and open to the public, this reception features traditional Indigenous prayers and performances, craft vendors, food, and a welcome address from imagineNATIVE and its international delegates in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere.

    A Space Gallery and the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival proudly present, Lovesick Child
    Curated by Elwood Jimmy
    Exhibition runs September 21 - October 26, 2013
    Co-Presented by Aboriginal Curatorial Collective

    Lovesick Child is Toronto's first retrospective exhibition between A Space Gallery and the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival on Aboriginal new media pioneer Âhasiw Maskêgon-Iskwêw. Âhasiw's work with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Banff Centre on a number of equity and new media initiatives such as Drum Beats to Drum Bytes in 1994 ensured Indigenous presence within the new territory of new media and the Internet. He initiated a number of projects in collaboration with local artists, local youth, and street-involved people in North Central Regina, at the vanguard of interdisciplinary work that privileged and combined community stories and Indigenous worldviews & narratives.

    Part of a substantial body of work that spanned several years, practices, and communities, Lovesick Child—the audio/text project from which the title of this exhibition is derived—synthesizes a number of the different streams of art production that Âhasiw undertook in his lifetime. For this exhibition, this piece functions as a foundation for both a discussion of Âhasiw's work and influence on Canadian media art, as well as the two complementary works in the exhibition newly created by artists Adrian Stimson and Leslie McCue. Curated by Elwood Jimmy, Lovesick Child focuses on some of Âhasiw's key works, as well as on artists like Âhasiw, who locate community, collaboration, interactivity, and Indigenous knowledge and practice at the forefront of their respective practices.

    A Space Gallery and the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival proudly present, Lovesick Child
    Curated by Elwood Jimmy
    Exhibition runs September 21 - October 26, 2013 Co-Presented by Aboriginal Curatorial Collective

    Lovesick Child is Toronto's first retrospective exhibition between A Space Gallery and the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival on Aboriginal new media pioneer Âhasiw Maskêgon-Iskwêw. Âhasiw's work with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Banff Centre on a number of equity and new media initiatives such as Drum Beats to Drum Bytes in 1994 ensured Indigenous presence within the new territory of new media and the Internet. He initiated a number of projects in collaboration with local artists, local youth, and street-involved people in North Central Regina, at the vanguard of interdisciplinary work that privileged and combined community stories and Indigenous worldviews & narratives.

    Part of a substantial body of work that spanned several years, practices, and communities, Lovesick Child—the audio/text project from which the title of this exhibition is derived—synthesizes a number of the different streams of art production that Âhasiw undertook in his lifetime. For this exhibition, this piece functions as a foundation for both a discussion of Âhasiw's work and influence on Canadian media art, as well as the two complementary works in the exhibition newly created by artists Adrian Stimson and Leslie McCue. Curated by Elwood Jimmy, Lovesick Child focuses on some of Âhasiw's key works, as well as on artists like Âhasiw, who locate community, collaboration, interactivity, and Indigenous knowledge and practice at the forefront of their respective practices.

    Launching Pleasure Dome’s fall season, our annual New Toronto Works (NTW) screening showcases the city’s freshest film and video works. This year’s show marks the twentieth anniversary of NTW and will feature a selection of digital films that propose questions of voice in relationship to space. Ranging through aesthetic choices that consider the body as a vehicle for narration, these works plot gender, geography, optics, utterance and trace. The various architectures of production generate strategies of spacing that expand and collapse structures of address, moving between the visible speaking subject, the disrupted or disembodied voice and bodies that signal their silence.

    The 14th annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival returns October 16-20, 2013 in downtown Toronto with some of the most compelling and distinctive Indigenous works from around the globe.

     

    imagineNATIVE is proud to announce that Mystery Road, directed by Ivan Sen, will open the film portion of the Festival at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema on Wednesday, October 16, presented by the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network. Mystery Road tells the story of Indigenous cowboy-detective Jay Swan as he returns to his outback hometown to solve the murder of a teenage girl. The closing night film, presented by Global Toronto, Uvanga, directed by Madeline Piujuq Ivalu & Marie-Hélène Cousineau, will be screened on Sunday, October 20 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Uvanga is the story of a young man discovering the land and culture of a father he never knew in Igloolik, Nunavut.

     

    Upholding its role as the world’s largest presenter of Indigenous film and media arts, imagineNATIVE uses each annual Festival to shine a spotlight on an Indigenous nation outside of Canada. This year, the Festival will feature works from the Māori nation of New Zealand with groundbreaking feature films, Mana Waka and The Neglected Miracle, two shorts programs, and radio works, to be presented at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.

     

    imagineNATIVE will present 101 films including documentaries, feature length movies, and short programs by Indigenous filmmakers including Jeff Barnaby’s debut feature film Rhymes for Young Ghouls; Jennifer Podemski’s indie drama Empire of Dirt, which tells the story of three generations of women unearthing and coping with family drama and past mistakes; comedy shorts program The Pow-Wow Rangers; horror comedy film Fresh Meat about modern-day Māori cannibals; and documentary Brave New River (La Nouvelle Rupert) that examines the effects of hydro electric damming on the James Bay Cree over the past four decades.

In addition, ATCR will act as mentor to Nelson Tagoona, a teen-aged beatboxing throat singer from Iqaluit. Tagoona will open for ATCR with his innovative form of beatboxing, which incorporates Inuit throat singing. His guttural and ethereal beats create a new style of hip-hop that is experimental and original.

     

    On Friday, October 18, imagineNATIVE will present the Uncanny Arts Crawl within the 401 Richmond Building.

    This year, imagineNATIVE will continue its presentation of Radio Works, presented by Bell Media, a unique exhibit of audio art that highlights the role of radio in rural tribes. Community radio remains a fundamental means for communication, education, and language preservation within Indigenous communities. Radio Works will feature six pieces including radio drama Skin Writing, produced by Radio New Zealand, as part of the Māori spotlight.

     

    imagineNATIVE invites Festival goers to explore New Media Works which are collections of online experiences including videos games such as Skahiòn:hati: Rise of the Kanien'kehá:ka Legends based on several traditional Mohawk legends, and online art galleries such as Offerings, a collaborative web-based exhibition that reflects on the complex and diverse practices linked to the gesture of offering and gifting.

     

    All Radio Works and New Media Works are free and will be exhibited at imagineNATIVE’s Radio + New Media Lounge at the TIFF Bell Lightbox and through imagineNATIVE’s Festival iPhone App.

     

    The 2013 Festival will also see the launch of the indigiTALKS Video Essay Project. Taking place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, indigiTALKS challenges three Ontario-based Indigenous artists to each produce a 10-minute video essay and give a public presentation on a new thesis of artistic discourse in Indigenous-created film and video work. The three selected recipients for 2013 are Wanda Nanibush, Rachelle Dickenson and Ariel Smith.

     

    The 14th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival kicks off at 2pm on Wednesday, October 16 with a Welcome Gathering at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, co-presented by Miziwe Biik Aboriginal Training and Education and TD Bank Group, (16 Spadina Rd.).
