NFB/imagineNative looking for Indigenous creators

Thursday, July 19, 2018 - 16:00 to 17:00

The National Film Board (NFB) and imagineNative are looking for daring, innovative proposals from Indigenous creators.

On July 19th these collaborators will be hosting a Facebook Live panel and information session for all NFB/imagineNATIVE Digital Project Prize applicants. This is short notice but there will be time spent for those interested in making submissions before the August 30, 2018 deadline.

Applicants can use this new resource to help them put together the best possible pitch. The Facebook Live discussion on July 19th will offer valuable insights and tips on how to apply for the sixth edition of this exceptional program for Indigenous creators.

Taking place on Facebook (hashtag #iN19) from 4 to 5 p.m., EDT, the conversation will feature past winners of the Digital Project Prize including Ahnahktsipiitaa (untitled), Cara Mumford (Red Card), Tyler Hagan (Similkameen Crossroads) and Jordan Bennett (Ice Fishing).

The panel will be moderated by Dana Dansereau (NFB Producer, Digital Studio) and Meagan Byrne (Digital + Interactive Coordinator, imagineNATIVE), who will also provide an overview of the Interactive Partnership and the submissions process. Viewers are invited to ask questions.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
