McIntyre Media is extremely proud to announce our partnership with Wapikoni Mobile, a mobile intervention, training and creative studio for Indigenous youth. This new collaboration gives you access to a variety of short films produced and directed by Indigenous youth across Canada. As part of our road to reconciliation, this is a wonderful opportunity to magnify the voices of Indigenous people and to hear their stories, share in their journeys, and discover their culture.

Wapikoni’s mission is to amplify the voices of the Indigenous generation through film and music, to broadcast their work in Canada and abroad, and to act as a tool for professional development and social transformation. Since its inception, thousands of Wapikoni participants from 28 Nations have collaborated on short films translated into multiple languages and winners of numerous awards and honours at national and international festivals.

In this collection of short films, you have access to stories about culture, music, creation, governance, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, language, the two spirited community, and more. Filmed in various First Nation communities across the country including Cree, Métis, Anishnaabe, Coast Salish, Splatsin, Mi’gmaq, Dene and Inuit.
