Concordia, Kiuna partner on transfer agreement to support Indigenous filmmakers

Concordia University and Kiuna College have established a transfer agreement that will foster the next generation of Indigenous filmmakers. Graduates of Kiuna‚Äôs First Nations Languages and Indigenous Cinema programs will now be able to transfer credits toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia. The partnership aims to remove barriers to Indigenous representation in cinema and enable Indigenous filmmakers to hone their skills and voices. “Through this partnership, we hope to encourage a new generation of creators,” said Kiuna Director Prudence Hannis. “It is our hope that Kiuna will become a natural conduit for young Indigenous students who are passionate about the world of film.”
