Over 14,000 people from all over the world gather in Toronto every October to celebrate Indigenous storytelling at the largest Indigenous film and media arts Festival in the world. The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is celebrating its 24th year, taking place in Toronto from October 17-22, 2023 (Toronto) and October 23-29, 2023 (online). We invite you to consider promoting your company among the Indigenous and culturally diverse audiences and markets.
Our program catalogue is the main source of information for the festival. In the catalogue you will find descriptions of events, artists and screenings as well as the festival schedule.
The program catalogue will be placed in every delegate package (1000+) and will be available to all guests at our information booth. Advertising in the program catalogue gives you guaranteed exposure to imagineNATIVE’s festival audiences. Your ad will be seen many times as the catalogue will be read and referred to constantly by festival-goers throughout the six-day festival.
Our program catalogue is the main source of information for the Festival. In the catalogue you will find descriptions of events, artists and screenings as well as the festival schedule. Over 500 Festival catalogues are to be freely distributed during the Festival in addition to copies included in our delegate “swag bags” for invited industry professionals, artists, and partners, ensuring that you reach our community in a long lasting way.
Our pre-screening slides, which are played in the cinema, will run before every screening during the 24th Festival. This is a valuable approach to reach an engaged audience totaling up to 3500 people over 6 days of programming. These advertisements will play during the pre-show loop prior to any screening shown during the Festival.
Please reach out and contact us for more details.
Pre-screening slides will play with the lights up before every screening during the 20th festival. Your purchased on-screen ad will play at least 10 times at each screening (approximately 30 screenings). That means your ad will be shown a minimum of 300 times in front of our audience!
This year for the first time, imagineNATIVE will be offering an opportunity to purchase an on-screen trailer slot to play in front of every screening during the festival (approx. 30 screenings). Trailers will play with the lights down before the film starts.
Our guest guide is a booklet with recommendations of Toronto’s best places to eat, drink, shop and be entertained. In this booklet you will find listings of our hospitality partners with a map to festival locations. To be listed as one of our hospitality partners we invite you to consider promoting your business through discounts and offers.
We also invite you to place an advertisement in the guest guide.
