imagineNATIVE Institute

The imagineNATIVE Institute is a department within imagineNATIVE that houses year-round professional development programs, events, and talks for Indigenous screen and digital content creators. The Institute presents Industry Days at the annual imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, with panels, masterclasses and networking/social events.

Much of the Institute's year-round programming takes place in The Commons @ 401, a multi-purpose arts space including a gallery/screening room, located on the 4th floor of the historic 401 Richmond Building in downtown Toronto. The Institute strives to provide Indigenous-led professional development opportunities that will address gaps within the industry, some of which will be open to international Indigenous applicants.
