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.
Jesse Green is a child of rock and roll, raised on the road by blues guitar legend Billie Joe Green. Jesse grew up around music and has been involved in at least one form of music all his life. From crawling around a set of drums as a kid to handling the recording mixing board at the age of 12, Jesse is coming of age in the world of music and video production. Life on the road was not easy for Jesse, but the nomadic lifestyle brought adventure and a strong desire to be creative. His early musical influences would inform his decisions in later life. His project called “Arbor Live!”, a performance-based variety program for APTN, features some of Canada's top acts - Kinnie Starr, George Leach and Kashtin to name a few. A keen ear for music has launched for Jesse his niche in the next wave of Indigenous storytellers.
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.
