“Partnering with an Indigenous digital agency was key to the success of the Indian Horse Film. Animikii’s entire team understood our vision and worked in collaboration with us to foster a meaningful conversation around Reconciliation through the film’s digital media. Thanks to Animikii, we reached hundreds of thousands of people through the digital campaign they developed.” — Indian Horse Film Producers
