Presented by imagineNATIVE, LIFT and Harbour Collective
April 22, 2021 2pm - 5pm EDT
This event is Accessible.
On Thursday, April 22, 2021, the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT), imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival and the Harbour Collective are proud to present "imagineNATIVE x LIFT Originals,” a retrospective of 10 original films produced as part of the LIFT/imagineNATIVE Mentorship program.
Although wildly different in style and approach, the films that have come out of this long running mentorship touch on many of the same themes and visual motifs. The ten films that make up the retrospective meditate on cultural memory, rebirth, and the mysteries of the natural world. Individually these projects are striking but as a collective they are a testament to the creative strength and diversity at play amongst Indigenous filmmakers working today.
