Event description

Description

INDIGENOUS 150+ is a film and conversation series dedicated to putting Indigenous voices centre stage. It was started in 2017, as a response to the Truth and Reconciliaton 94 Calls To Action.

October 16th, marks the launch of INDIGENOUS 150+ in Ottawa, which will be held on a quarterly basis in partnership with Asinabka Film and Media Arts Festival, and SAW VIDEO.

October 16th, is also a special event screening which will announce the vision to create a National Indigenous Cinema initiative and an invitation for businesses, foundations and individuals to come together to fulfill the vision.

The evening will include a Traditional Opening and blessing, a film programme which includes a Special Preview of FUTURE HISTORY: Reclaiming our History, Harnessing our Future, a new series created by Jennifer Podemski and Kris Nahrgang for APTN, about shifting the colonial narrative and celebrating the reclamation of indigenous knowledge and identity.

Special guest speakers include: Jesse Wente, Indigenous Screen Office and Kris Nahrgang, Chief Kawartha Nishnawbe First Nation, Artist and Executive Producer and Co-Host of Future History. The master of ceremonies for the evening will be Guy Freedman, President of First Peoples Group and a Senior Advisor on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The full programme will be announced shortly.

Organisations, foundations, individuals, businesses and all levels of government across the country, as well as the public will be invited to join with NationTalk, Good Influence Films, Canada World Youth, HIP and other partners to help build a national initiative that will commemorate and celebrate Indigenous voices, cultures, and perspectives. Our aim is to educate Canadians and bring all peoples together to create collaborations across all nations, and build connections and shared experiences in communities across the country. We give gratitude to the Ottawa Art Gallery for hosting this inaugral event on Unceded Algonquin Territory in Ottawa.

Indigenous 150+, along with its partners have hosted events in Owen Sound, Blue Mountain Village, Niagara Falls and more recently, Canmore, Alberta. To date Indigenous 150+ has presented over 13 films by 11 award-winning filmmakers and hosted over 36 Indigenous speakers including Chiefs, Elders and Youth Leaders.

This is our common past and a road we walk together. We invite you to join hands and walk with us.

We look forward to seeing you on October 16th, 2018,

Most Sincerely,

JoAnne Fishburn, Good Infuence Films

We also acknowledge the original peoples of Turtle Island. We give honour to all First Peoples and in particular the Anishinaabe, the Attawandaron, the Haudenosaunee, the Métis the original custodians of the land, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit on whose Territory we hold our offices and where we live, work and play.
