Following the success of Aabiziingwashi (Wide Awake), a series of 1,000+ screenings that took place from 2017 to 2019 across Turtle Island and around the world, the NFB is pleased to announce that its collection of 250+ Indigenous-made works will now be permanently available for community screenings!
A selection of new films is available now, including Tasha Hubbard’s new feature-length documentary, nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up, the short docs Lake (part of the NFB’s Five Feminist Minutes 2019 series) by Alexandra Lazarowich, Three Thousand by Asinnajaq, Children of the Nomad by Evelyne Papatie, and Délia 9 to 5 by Délia Gunn, as well as the five films from the Urban.Indigenous.Proud series: Full Circle by Kristi Lane Sinclair, Some Stories by Clayton Windatt, That Old Game Lacrosse by Jamie Whitecrow, Zaagi’idiwin by Tracie Louttit, and Places to Gather and Learn by Darlene Naponse.
These are stories of the land told by First Nations, Métis and Inuit filmmakers from every region. Powerful, political, and profound, these films will initiate and inspire conversations on identity, family, community, and nationhood.
