This annual celebration of Indigenous culture and issues brings the work of filmmakers and artists, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, from around the world to Ottawa.

This year’s festival includes film screenings, contemporary art exhibits, music, dance, seminars and workshops. Opening night on Wednesday, Aug. 9 includes an outdoor screening of films on Victoria Island, while a diverse selection of films from many cultures and nations runs Wednesday to Sunday at the Museum of Nature.
