The International Sami Film Institute and Nunavut Film Development Corporation are looking for indigenous filmmakers from the arctic region for a film workshop, Arctic Film Circle. The workshop is taking place in connection with the imagineNATIVE film + media arts festival in Toronto, Canada 12th-14th of October 2015.

The aim of Arctic Film Circle is to establish an arctic film alliance with filmmakers from the arctic circumpolar area.

The first step is to create a workshop for indigenous filmmakers with the aim to create one script, with a common indigenous story. The filmmakers themselves create a story that could be told in any arctic indigenous community, based on indigenous storytelling.

The final goal is to produce one or many films, based on the script developed at this ini-tial workshop in Canada, if further funding for production is achieved and ultimately create an arctic film network within the circumpolar indigenous arctic film area.

ISFI’s AFC project is primarily looking for indigenous filmmakers from Sámi, Greenland, Canada and Russia, however applicants from other arctic areas could be considered.

If this is something for you, please send a short application with a CV and introduction of yourself and your ideas on an indigenous story. Applicants from Canada and Greenland send to and Sami and others to extended dead-line until September 18th 2015.

The Norwegian Foreign Ministry, Nordic Culture Point, ISFI and UNESCO are funding this project.
