The Vision Quest documentary was created to share a story that many Canadians do not know. The film is a brief history of the Indigenous peoples of Canada told by our people, our perspectives. It also offers a pathway to hope and victory by leveraging modern legislation outside the Indian Act. The film highlights the success stories of many First Nations across the country. Specifically, the film showcases stories of First Nations that have used the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (FMA) to access long-term affordable capital to promote social and economic development.
The documentary was completed during the summer of 2020 and the first private screening took place virtually in October 2020. The FMA institutions, the Lands Advisory Board and government officials were invited to this inaugural screening. During the First Nations Leading the Way national conference, the documentary was also hosted on the FMB website. Vision Quest has been submitted to film festivals nationally and internationally for 2020 and 2021. The film is also expected to premiere on APTN during the Summer of 2021.
On behalf of the FMA institutions, we hope you enjoy our story.
