Live from the Floe Edge: From an Inuit Point of View is the world's first Inuit film produced expressly for distribution through the internet.

Led by Igloolik Isuma Productions founder, Zacharias Kunuk, Canada's foremost northern filmmaker, Live from the Floe Edge uses Isuma's new video website as a global media platform for Inuit to speak through the internet to the future as they see it.

Live from the Floe Edge is the first film, the first chapter of a production series to be distributed on IsumaTV throughout 2008-2010, presenting the view from the Inuit side of environmental issues, climate change and social, cultural and human rights challenges facing the arctic homeland in the 21st century.

IsumaTV presents this unique, innovative and extraordinary filmmaking process through the internet.
