The Witness Series – Second grant round expected for 2024

Arctic Indigenous Film Fund (AIFF) and Telefilm Canada have partnered up to produce short film series The Witness, which includes training and workshops for Indigenous filmmakers at various locations in the Arctic. The first grant round was in spring 2023. Now we are expecting the second round for 2024 to take place in November / December 2023.

Are you interested in telling stories of your Indigenous community? How is climate change affecting your everyday life? Do you have an interesting point of view about people’s special skills in organizing, creating new ways, and managing in the changing Arctic?

We offer production grants and mentoring program to Arctic Indigenous filmmakers. Write us an idea for a short film that focuses on climate change, community and people. The length of the film can be 3-5 minutes.

Keep an eye out for updates!
