Main Floor, TIFF Gallery


For the first time, imagineNATIVE presents a large-scale presentation of digital and interactive work in a newly curated space on the main floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox. This is an exciting first step in our multi-year process to enhance the presentation, development and discourse on Indigenous-made digital and interactive media at imagineNATIVE. Spearheaded by artist Meagan Byrne, our first Digital + Interactive Coordinator, and supported by the Initiative for Indigenous Futures (IIF), the iNdigital Space is unlike anything we have done before.

Come to the iNdigital Space to see and play an exciting showcase of VR, games, interactive websites and digital web series. Listen to digital and interactive artists talk about their works and process during our daily one hour Artist Talk Series (1-2pm everyday Thursday to Saturday) or come to our industry talk and learn about Indigenous digital media (Tuesday).

For those who like something a little more tactile, come visit our Makerspace provided by Maker Bean Cafe. See how 3D printing works and watch as our Digital and Interactive Awards are printed in front of you! Maybe try a laser etched cookie or watch as your Festival pin is laser cut as you wait.

Best of all it’s all free and open to the public, with trained volunteers on hand to lend support!
