All Festival Screenings
FREE on Friday, October 19

The 19th Annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is pleased to announce that all screenings on Friday, October 19 for FREE thanks to the generous support of TD Bank Group. For the first time the TD Bank Group Free Friday Initiative welcomes everyone to enjoy a day of world-class Indigenous films and digital media.

"As part of our corporate citizenship platform, The Ready Commitment, we are proud to support the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival with the TD Free Friday Initiative," says Andrea Barrack, Vice President, Global Corporate Citizenship. "The festival provides an opportunity for people to connect within their community, to learn about Indigenous cultures and support film that is reflective of all voices."

Highlights from the Free Friday schedule include: Electro, a showcase of Indigenous music videos and talent; The Witching Hour, the annual late-night screening of comedy and horror shorts; Marks of Mana, a collection of stories honouring the powerful women; and Positions, a programme about two-spirited communities who resist stigma, claim space, and look damn fierce while doing it.

"We at imagineNATIVE always strive to be the most accessible festival in the world and this initiative makes us even more accessible to audiences,” said Jason Ryle, Artistic and Managing Director of imagineNATIVE.

All screenings on Friday, October 19 are FREE and can be redeemed online, by phone or in person at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Box Office. Two FREE tickets per person. This initiative has been made possible by the generous support of the TD Bank Group.
