The Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative’s (AFCOOP’s) Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival (HIFF)
in conjunction with the National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition (NIMAC) is pleased to be presenting
two screenings of recent Indigenous film and video works from across Canada.

"The works selected for these two screenings include a collection of the Best of the Indigenous Fest,
narrative works from various Indigenous media arts festivals across Canada, as well as a collection
of experimental documentary works called The NIMAC Documentary Project. “These works have not been seen
in the Atlantic region before and so we are very happy to be presenting them,” said AFCOOP’s Chairperson
Jeff Wheaton, “These screenings are a great opportunity to see some very interesting and innovative works
by a number of emerging and established Indigenous artists.“

Two of the Indigenous artists represented in the screenings, filmmakers David Krouse and Jackie Traverse,
will be in attendance.
