In March and April 2011, ten Indigenous youth from four communities participated in an innovative workshop as part of the imagineNATIVE Northern Ontario Film + Video Tour. Rather than supply the equipment, the imagineNATIVE crew did something different: the youth were instructed on how to make the videos using technology already available in their communities and using editing software already installed on available computers. The result is ten short videos - shot with iPods, point-and-shoot digital cameras, camcorders, and webcams - made through the tour's workshop entitled "My Space. My Story." led by filmmaker and artist Keesic Douglas.

This online voting format is a first for imagineNATIVE. The artist with the most votes will win a trip (hotel & transport) to the 2011 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival in Toronto and attend a public screening of their work! Watch them all! Cast your vote! And tell your friends and family! Voting is open until May 1st and results will be announced on May 2nd.

The participating Indigenous youth were Aliyah Diamond-Gunner, Sequin D. Williams, Roseanne Knapaysweet, Laura Gagnon, Tyson Pamajewon, Braiden Metatawabin, Dylin Legault, Tina Williams, Keelan Keeshig, and Lorne Pawis.

imagineNATIVE congratulates these emerging artists and thanks the participating schools and communities of Parry Sound, Thunder Bay, Timmins and Fort Albany for their support. This project was made possible through financial contributions from the Ontario Arts Council, York University, Ontario College of Art and Design, Canada World Youth, and imagineNATIVE.
