Isuma.tv is a fantastic multimedia website for Inuit and Indigenous media culture, focusing on independent media content.
Launched in 2008, Isuma.tv presents cultural, digital media content from Inuit and Indigenous people. This platform encourages Indigenous people to share their stories through digital multimedia. Created by the producers of movie Atanarjuat The Fast Runner, Igloolik Isuma Productions, this webspace is open for people to share their past, present and futures through video, photos and audio.
By creating a channel on Isuma.tv you can share and network with other Indigenous people making digital media and artistry. There are currently over 2600 videos in 46 different Indigenous languages.
The site is available in either high or low bandwidth choices for those in more rural communities.
Igloolik Isuma Productions is winding down it’s operations as a film company, but Norman Cohn, one of the Isuma directors, assures that the Isuma.tv initiative will not be affected.
