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.

Storytellers in Motion S2E22 Jordon Wheeler
“Modern Indigenous Aboriginal Native Indian Type Dude: Jordan Wheeler” Series 2 Episode 22
With a mix of Cree, Ojibway, Assiniboian, English, Scottish and Irish heritage Jordan Wheeler describes himself as a modern Indigenous aboriginal native type dude. At 42, his career as a professional writer spans 25 years, beginning in print journalism at age 17. He moved to screenwriting for television with the popular series “North of 60”, writing there for four seasons. This Gemini award-winner talks about different forms of writing, his methods of research, and the differences in sensibilities that distinguish the stories told by First Nations people from those coming from a Judao, Christian or Islamic background. His behind-the-scenes tour of the dramatic series “RenegadePress.com” gives a detailed picture of the collaborative process of writing for television. Inspiring, articulate, and engaging, Jordan Wheeler will rock your socks.
Series two of “Storytellers in motion'' celebrates the achievements of Canada's Indigenous artists who work across media that include photography, print journalism, screenwriting for film and television and broadcast news. All have inspiring careers and contribute their thoughts on their place in mainstream media as they seek to define the Indigenous voice.
