~ ~ ~

In this workshop, local artist, curator and filmmaker Eli Hirtle will guide participants through conversation about practices & protocols specific to working with Indigenous peoples and their stories. Eli will share stories of his film-making practice, which he describes as “community-based collaborations”. We will also look at and discuss “ON-SCREEN PROTOCOLS & PATHWAYS: A Media Production Guide to Working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit Communities, Cultures, Concepts and Stories”, a comprehensive publication commissioned by ImagineNATIVE film festival in 2019.

Topics will include narrative sovereignty, screen-based protocols & principles, meaningful collaborations and building relationships based on trust, respect, responsibility, reciprocity and consent. As a case study we will watch Lekwungen: Place to Smoke Herring (2018), a film created by Eli Hirtle & Brianna Bear for a permanent art exhibition at Victoria City Hall. We will also view clips from the series Eli created for Telus’ Optik Network, Voices on the Rise (2019), to get a sense of how these protocols can be put into practice.

6pm – 10pm Pacific Time
