Greenland films in spotlight at media arts festival in Toronto

The imagineNative film and media arts festival in Toronto, Canada, will feature a heavy dose of Inuit films with an international spotlight on Greenland.

The guest programmer of the festival is Greenlandic film-maker Emile Hertling Péronard, part of the world’s smallest and newest film industry.

Making up the programme is Anori, a dramatic feature currently in post-production. Also included is Sume: the Sound of a Revolution, an award-winning documentary produced by Emile Hertling Péronard, and the comedy Fore Finger, Middle Finger, Ring Finger, Little Finger, which was made on a budget of 70 euros.

There will also be films screened by two Nunabut Inuit film-makers: Alethea Arnaquq-Baril’s documentary Angry Inuk (pictured), which opens the festival, and Zacharias Kunuk’s feature film Searchers.

 

The imagineNative film and media arts festival will run until the 23rd of October.
