Quand le cinéma crée des ponts

The symposium Quand le cinéma crée des ponts brings together community intervenants and leaders of creative and communications agencies that working to appropriate audiovisual media by and for Indigenous peoples. It aims to lay a basis for an International Network for Aboriginal Audiovisual creations, allowing for long-term exchanges, developing co-productions and joint creations between partners from different horizons as well as a broader circulation of works. This is a milestone element in the ten years of Wapikoni Mobile, whose reputation and activities now extend throughout the Americas.

Made possible through joint efforts of Wapikoni mobile, GIRA (Groupe interdisciplinaire de recherches sur les Amériques), Kanien’keha:ka onkwawén:na Raotitióhkwa, Terres en vues / Land insights and many more partners.
