While VUCAVU’s work is achieved with nation-wide partnerships, our head office is situated in downtown Toronto. We acknowledge the diversity of the First Peoples of the area from where we reach out across Canada and internationally, and honour the stewardship of the Mississaugas of the New Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Iroquois-Haudenosaunee, and the Huron-Wendat. 

This territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between allied First Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, the meeting place of Toronto (from the Haudenosaunee word Tkaronto) is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful for the opportunity to reach out across Canada and internationally in support of Canada’s independent film and video sector through digital means from this territory.

VUCAVU acknowledges the support of our funders, service providers, distribution partners, key consultants, board members and other partners.
