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.   More »
