imagineNATIVE Insitute


Launched at the 18th annual Festival, the imagineNATIVE iNstitute is a department housing the organization’s professional development and training programs for Indigenous screen creatives in a year-round production cycle. Activated through the realization of a new, public facility for the organization in the historic 401 Richmond Building, the iNstitute will incorporate the imagineNATIVE’s Festival Industry Series and special current annual initiatives, build capacity for existing and new programs for which there is currently a gap in the industry, and open up select programs for international intake.
