The National Film Board of Canada has launched Indigenous Cinema, a website that offers free streaming of more than 200 titles by Indigenous directors.
The website is part of the NFB’s three-year Indigenous Action Plan and will also feature playlists and filmmaker biographies.
Films available to stream include Mike Kanentakeron Mitchell’s “You Are on Indian Land,” Alanis Obomsawin’s “Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance” and Gil Cardinal’s autobiographical “Foster Child.”
Other commitments in the NFB’s Indigenous Action Plan include efforts to achieve workforce equity, cultural-competency training for all staff, and allocating a minimum of 15 per cent of its overall production spending to Indigenous-directed projects.
