IMAA joined the forum innovafrica #5 abidjan - ivory coast
The Forum theme was "Innovation through experimentation" - practitioners and creators of digital and social innovations.
The IMAA is greatly saddened by the news of
Canadian documentary filmmaker Peter Wintonick's passing. The
contribution he made to documentary culture, both nationally and
internationally, during his lifetime is irrefutable. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.
IMAA shares the letter from John Greyson and his video "dedicated to the many who spoke out for their release,
and for the many who are still behind bars."

Meet with your MP
Because of the prorogation of Parliament, Arts 308 is replacing our
regular Arts Day on the Hill. Arts advocates are encouraged to set up
meetings between now and the Christmas holidays because this is when
most decisions about the budget are made.

IMAA received a letter from Heritage Minister James Moore in response to our media arts prize campaign. In the letter he states "Media arts have a special place in our cultural landscape and are increasingly embraced by Canadians." One of the goals of this initiative is to raise awareness about the media arts which is expressed in the accompanying video on the IndieGoGo site. Have you donated yet? Have you shared the video? Let's keep up the momentum to strengthen the sector!
