2167 - virtual reality project commissioned and produced by TIFF, imagineNATIVE, Pinnguaq and the Initiative for Indigenous Futures. As part of TIFF’s sesquicentennial initiative Canada on Screen, five Indigenous filmmakers and artists — Jeff Barnaby, Danis Goulet, Kent Monkman, Scott Benesiinaabandan, and the interdisciplinary arts collective Postcommodity — were commissioned to create VR projects envisioning Indigenous life 150 years in the future.
The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous film festival and one of Canada’s most successful Aboriginal-run arts organizations. Our Tour is one of our most important projects and it’s our goal to ensure that Aboriginal people in Canada have access to films made by Aboriginal artists. Indigenous people are often unrepresented or misrepresented in mainstream media including film and television. It is incredibly empowering to see self-determined representations of Aboriginal people made by Aboriginal people. The tour is a fantastic way to celebrate and experience Indigenous voices, stories and perspectives.
