mispon is celebrating ten years with an International Indigenous 2 Spirit Collaboration between Saskatchewan Cree, Ontario Anishinabe and Aotearoa New Zealand Māori artists and programmers, Candy Fox, Howard Adler and Leo Koziol. The trio will work on a short documentary production to be screened at the Wairoa Māori Film Festival in Wairoa Aotearoa New Zealand in June 2017 and at the Asinabka Film + Media Arts Festival in Ottawa, Ontario, in August 2017. The trio will work on two more productions while in Wairoa and Ottawa. All three shorts exploring Indigenous 2 Spirit identities will screen at the 2017 mispon Indigenous Film Festival.
We are excited to welcome Howard and Leo to Regina, Saskatchewan, from December 2-8, 2016, to work with Candy Fox on this exciting new initiative in collaboration with the Asinabka Film + Media Arts Festival and the Wairoa Māori Film Festival.
