British Columbia is a vast landscape that has been home to Indigenous Nations since time immemorial. There is diversity in the languages and cultures that span the province.
Knowledge Network, in partnership with the First Peoples’ Cultural Council, is seeking Indigenous filmmakers to produce stories reflecting the cultural values First Peoples bring to British Columbia. These stories will be broadcast on Knowledge Network and its streaming platforms. We are looking for stories that inform, entertain and enlighten audiences about First Nations cultural revitalization in British Columbia, which include efforts to revitalize languages, arts, cultures and heritage and showcase the positive impact on communities. These stories will span a wide variety of subject areas including, but not limited to, art, music, dance, songs, stories, languages and language technology, heritage stewardship, repatriation, archeology.
Knowledge Network and the First Peoples’ Cultural Council recognize the effects of colonization on Indigenous peoples. Therefore, we seek inspirational stories that celebrate British Columbia’s First Peoples and demonstrate what makes their cultures so vibrant, resilient, and hopeful with a future full of possibility.
Knowledge Network and the First Peoples’ Cultural Council will be providing Q&A Sessions by Zoom regarding this call on the following dates:
To register for any of these info sessions please email Gordon Loverin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
