Moving Images Distribution is located on the traditional, ancestral, unceded and occupied territory of the Coast Salish peoples - xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations - commonly known as Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Our roots lie within the independent film and video community. During the 1970s, a group of talented filmmakers began developing ways to increase the profile of their work. Their vision resulted in the formation of Canadian Filmmakers Distribution West which changed its name to Moving Images Distribution in 1994. Since our beginnings in 1979, we've worked to connect audiences with innovative works by some of Canada's internationally acclaimed media artists working in experimental, documentary, animation, short fiction and personal narrative.

HOLODOMOR: Voices of Survivors (in spoken Ukrainian with voiceover in English)
Ukrainian Canadians recall childhood memories of the Holodomor, an engineered famine under the rule of Joseph Stalin. Soviet soldiers methodically removed all food to ensure starvation of millions of Ukrainians while exporting bumper crops of wheat to the rest of the world. For years the media denied the existence of this engineered genocide that had consequences that reverberate even today.
