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.
Growing up around a politician is not something you'll find in Danis Goulet's résumé. But learning that her parents were both selfless educators and her father the first Aboriginal Cabinet Minister in a Saskatchewan government might put her in a different light. Most of the time this young woman is known by her urban identity: filmmaker, mother and community organizer. As a past Executive Director and Artistic Director for the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, Danis Goulet brings with her significant experience in the film and television industry. Her short film Spin has screened at several festivals, including the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. She has received critical acclaim for her feature film “Night Raiders” which was executively produced by New Zealand's Taika Waititi.
“Storytellers in Motion”, Series 3 continues its celebration of Canada's Indigenous artists who work across media, from writers, producers and directors to video artists.
