The ISO champions Indigenous screen-based storytellers and narrative sovereignty in Canada through our funding and advocacy work.

We support Indigenous companies, communities and individuals to share their diverse stories and perspectives across all screen platforms.


ISO supports Indigenous storytelling across ALL screen-based platforms through a number of distinct funding programs.


Protocols are central to shifting industry practices for Indigenous productions, and for furthering the ISO’s mandate to foster and support Indigenous narrative sovereignty on screens.


Throughout the year, ISO will post training opportunities and initiatives that we are collaborating on with partners.
