Two-Eyed Seeing: Request for Proposals for Film Production
To film, edit, and produce two short documentaries based on two fisheries research projects led by the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) and partner organizations including the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (OMNRF), Parks Canada Agency (PCA), and academic partners.
Both projects use a “Two-Eyed Seeing approach” yet have different focus areas and messages to convey. We anticipate the production of each film will happen concurrently. Both projects seek to bridge knowledge systems between Indigenous knowledge (ex. SON-based ecological knowledge) and Western science, and involve community-based research including semi-structured interviews, mapping, and workshops with community members. SON community members possess a wealth of multi-generational knowledge and understandings of Lake Huron’s ecosystem and fish populations within the SON traditional territory.
Please see PDF file linked below for further information on both projects and how to submit a proposal. We are open to creative individuals who will help us clarify our outcomes.
