Director of World’s Largest Indigenous Film Festival Encourages Introspection and Generosity at First Future Festivals Workshop

“Thus far, this has been an extractivist discussion. Instead of only focusing on what we festival makers need, maybe we should also ask ourselves what we can give.”
– Naomi Johnson, Executive Director of imagineNATIVE Toronto, the world’s largest indigenous film and media arts festival, during the first Future Festivals Lab at NEW NOW in Essen (DE). Over the next 18 months, the MUTEK-led think tank brings together seven organizations from Canada, Germany, and Mexico to prototype festival futures.
