imagineNATIVE is proud to announce public access to the World Indigenous Cinema Catalogue (WICC). In partnership with the University of Western Ontario’s Department of Women's Studies and Feminist Research, a database of all films by Indigenous creators or with Indigenous content are now available in an online search engine. Users can search by a variety of advanced options including themes, Indigenous affiliations and language.

This resource will grow and develop as a key online resource as the world of cinematic attention to Indigenous talent and stories grow. imagineNATIVE will look to internship placements at the organisation to add new entries and maintain and enhance WICCs’ existing listings.

The World Indigenous Cinema Catalogue wouldn’t have existed without the dedicated commitment of Dr. Wendy G. Pearson Associate Professor, Associate Professor of Women's Studies and Feminist Research at the University of Western Ontario, and her collaborators, Dr. Kerstin Knopf of the University of Bremen and Dr. Ernie Blackmore of the Woolyngah Indigenous Institute at the University of Wollongong, as well as a regiment of student interns committed to this research and the cultivation of cinematic work. This project was made possible by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
