Land Acknowledgement

The Ottawa International Animation Festival operates on traditional unceded Algonquin Anishinabeg territory . Since time immemorial, the Algonquin Anishinabeg peoples have stewarded the lands, waters, and rich cultural life of this region. As part of honouring this territory, we encourage attendees to seek out the work of Indigenous filmmakers, learn about the territories that we each occupy, and take action in support of Indigenous self-determination and sovereignty.
