BearPaw Media Productions

Excellence in Aboriginal filmmaking for over 30 years

BearPaw Media Productions has been producing films that impact audiences across Alberta and around the world since 1976. BearPaw’s videos are created by a team of Aboriginal researchers, writers, filmmakers and production crews who explore some of the most relevant issues in Aboriginal education today.

Our material includes thought-provoking resources that may be of use in your community to:

  • Educate Aboriginal people about their rights
  • Foster new ideas and discussions
  • Increase awareness about social and justice issues

All of our videos include public performance rights (PPR) and are designed for use in classrooms, workshops and programs. Our videos are distributed throughout Alberta as well as across Canada and overseas, and have received accolades at numerous film festivals, including Yorkton Film Festival, Dreamspeakers Film Festival, the American Indian Film Festival and AMPIA.
