imagineNATIVE Institute Call for Pitches

Calling all Indigenous Film + Television creatives!

imagineNATIVE Institute’s Industry Days are returning to in-person events at Artscape Sandbox and TIFF Bell Lightbox from October 19 – 22, 2022 with a live Pitch Day event for Indigenous filmmakers! This event will give creatives the opportunity to present a project they have in development in front of Industry Leaders and fellow filmmakers. Each Pitch presented will receive feedback on their pitch from a jury of Industry Decisions makers. If you are an Indigenous creative that would like to participate in the Institute Pitch Day but cannot attend in person, you can send a pre-recorded video of your Pitch to be presented during the event.

Note: If your in-person Pitch includes video or visual support documents that you would like to be displayed while pitching, please send the support documents/video to with the Subject title “Institute Pitch Day Video” upon submitting this application.

Please send your Pitch video and/or all of your support documents before the application deadline. All Applications and Pitch Videos must be submitted by September 30, 2022, deadline.
