WorkInCulture is delighted to introduce you to our recently appointed Board Member, Daniel Northway-Frank.

Daniel Northway-Frank started as a volunteer for imagineNATIVE and has been a full time staff member since 2009, and since 2017 has been the Institute Director overseeing all aspects of professional development programming year-round, with a portfolio of over 25 industry partnerships in funding/in-kind support. Daniel has previously worked at Technicolor, Hot Docs and TIFF and brings much knowledge about programming policies and the larger film and media arts sector/industry to the organization. He has aggregated support and has produced two industry reports including "On Screen Protocols & Pathways: A Media Production Guide to Working with Indigenous Canadian Communities, Cultures, Concepts & Stories," a ground-breaking new initiative that is a touchstone for informed and collaborative media production practices with Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadian creators and communities. He has sat on the Board of Directors for Pleasure Dome and juries for Telefilm, TIFF Talent Lab, CBC’s Short Film Face Off and Worldwide Shorts Film Festival.

To learn more about Daniel, we asked him a few questions. Here’s what he had to say:

Why did you decide to serve on our board?

I joined the WorkInCulture board as I see many opportunities to benefit new and developing Indigenous administrators in the sector, and how to do it right with proper protocols in place.

What do you enjoy the most about contributing to the cultural sector?

I love my work as Institute Director of imagineNATIVE, and being an active part in the awareness, appreciation celebration of Indigenous screen media and its talented creators.

What is an interesting or fun project that you’re currently working on?

I'm currently working on our annual NATIVe Indigenous Cinema promotional stand and NATIVe Fellows program at the European Film Market during the Berlinale International Film Festival.

What cultural activity do you like to participate in most often?

Outside of work, I enjoy attending the cultural activities at Harbourfront each summer with my family and friends.
