The ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival Presents: Rosie + Slash/Back

Jun 28 - 29, 2024  |   5pm & 8pm

To close out our programming for Indigenous Peoples Month, imagineNATIVE will be screening two feature films at The Well Toronto.

Rosie | June 28 5 & 8 pm: A film about family, love, and misfits, ROSIE tells the story of a young, orphaned, Indigenous girl who is forced to live with her reluctant, street-smart Aunty Fred. Fred, introduces Rosie to her two best friends Flo and Mo, glamorous, gender-bending street workers. Rosie transforms the lives of these colourful characters and finds love, acceptance, and a true HOME with her newly chosen family of glittering outsiders.

Slash/Back | June 29 5 & 8 pm: When Maika and her ragtag friends discover an alien invasion in their tiny Inuit hamlet, it’s up to them to save the day. Utilizing their makeshift weapons and horror movie knowledge, the aliens realize you don’t mess with girls from Pang (Pangnirtung, Nunavut). Slash/Back presents a promising young cast and a vibrant portrait of resilience, friendship, and what it means to fight for community.
