The National Film Board of Canada says gains have been made – toward fostering Indigenous talent – but more work remains to be done.
The NFB says it has backed 35 Indigenous-directed projects representing 10 per cent of overall production spending – in the first year of its three-year Indigenous Action Plan – targeted at spending at least 15 per cent of production money on Indigenous-directed projects by 2020.
The NFB also launched a project on its website earlier this year – offering free streaming of more than 200 titles by Indigenous directors.
