We have re-branded the festival. Please join us at the Ottawa Canadian🍁 Film Festival.

LR4tR2p2Fire Song is a feature-length Canadian independent film about a gay Aboriginal teenager trying to support his family in the aftermath of his sister’s suicide. It is the first feature film by award-winning short filmmaker Adam Garnet Jones, whose team was one of winners of the inaugural Aboriginal Component of Telefilm Canada’s Micro Budget Production program.

“One of the first films by a First Nations director to deal with two-spirited people, the thoughtful and moving debut feature by Adam Garnet Jones focuses on a young Anishinaabe man who is forced to choose between staying in his community or exploring the expanded possibilities of the world outside.” — TIFF

Here’s Adam talking about the film in the Indiegogo campaign for the project.

Fire Song will enjoy its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this year.  

Here’s the trailer.
