Society for the dissemination
of Indigenous Culture
LAND INSIGHTS, among other activities, is the driving force behind the First Peoples’ Festival, a multidisciplinary cultural and artistic event that makes Montreal, for ten days in August, the centre of indigenous creativity in the three Americas.
The Montreal First Peoples’ Festival:
A flagship event for artistic creation and the cultural renaissance of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and the world. A place of creation, encounters and discoveries, the multidisciplinary event unfolds over ten days in August. The Place des Festivals, with its giant teepee, becomes the beating heart of an intense artistic activity that radiates throughout the city. First Peoples’ cinema is in the spotlight, memorable concerts bring the crowds to their feet, and living Aboriginal art is offered in a wide variety of expressions and forms.

Tribute to Jeff Barnaby
Last Saturday, a moving memorial gathering was held at the Cinémathèque québécoise in memory of Mi’gmaq filmmaker Jeff Barnaby, who recently (and much too soon!) passed away.
His audacious and avant-garde spirit is freely expressed in his films, including those screened tomorrow and the day after, in collaboration with Land InSights.
