about us

7th Screen is a new Quebec-based Indigenous distribution company for independent films made for theatrical, home video, and or broadcast wanting to showcase their work in Canada and around the world. Ranging from fiction films to documentaries, the 7th Screen team will handle sales, promotional campaigns and release strategies.

Our main goal will promote Indigenous filmmakers and share the rich culture and amazing stories with Canadians and international audiences. Our one of a kind distribution model will aim to bring productions to the general masses and Indigenous film lovers across the country. We believe that not all films should have the same release strategy and each film release will be carefully planned to optimize viewership and profit and garner the attention our films deserve.

7th Screen relies on the extensive expertise acquired by Nish Media, an award-winning production company, with close to 15 years of experience. Its knowledge of the independent film landscape is essential in developing solid partnerships with the industry’s key players.

WATCH RUSTIC ORACLE ON DEMAND

We’ll Always Have Toynbee

Written and Directed by Sonia B. Boileau

We’ll Always Have Toynbee is a classic story of a doomed love affair between a Caucasian man and a Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) woman. It is a story about magnetism, complicity and desire. When these impulses or emotions have no social context, no exterior elements weighing on them, there are no boundaries or limits. But it is also a story about how we, as First Nations, must put our convictions before our own personal feelings: Integrity becomes more powerful than love.
