3 Ears Indigenous Film Festival

from September 29 to October 3, 2023

This first annual 3 Ears Indigenous Film Festival honours Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The name “Three Ears” is derived from a quote in Jody Wilson-Raybould’s book True Reconciliation: How to Be a Force for Change:

“Patience and trust are essential for preparing to listen to stories. Listening involves more than just using the auditory sense. Listening encompasses visualizing the characters and their actions and letting the emotions surface. Some say we should listen with three ears: two on our head and one in our heart.”
