About Us

2020 marks the evolution of the Nunavut Children’s Film Festival into the Nunavut International Film Festival. This year, we’re thrilled to showcase films in both Inuktitut and Greenlandic languages.


Founded by the Nunavut Bilingual Education Society in 2018, the Nunavut Children’s Film Festival is an annual initiative designed to bring entertaining Inuktitut content to children in Nunavut. Each year, the festival takes place at the Astro Theatre and DVDs are distributed across Nunavut to schools interested in hosting their own festival.

For Filmmakers 

Each year, the Nunavut International Film Festival and Nunavut Children’s Film Festival accepts submissions of shorts, documentaries, animation, feature length films, and music videos from filmmakers across Nunavut.

If you are an independent filmmaker in Nunavut interested in having your work at next year’s (2021) festival, please submit your short film to projects@nbes.ca.


A Note on Submission: 
NCFF accepts digital submissions as secure Dropbox/Vimeo/Youtube links. We will not accept hard copies (DVD, etc).
