Each year imagineNATIVE partners with four artist-run centres to offer a mentorship opportunity to four Indigenous filmmakers. Through the mentorship, each filmmakers creates a short film (5-10min) using the resources of each partner artist-run centre, plus a $1,000 CAD bursary, and their film premieres at that year’s imagineNATIVE Festival!

Our partner organizations are: Charles Street Video (Toronto), LIFT (Toronto), CSIF (Calgary), and NBFC (Fredericton).
