APTN brings Indigenous stories to audiences across Canada and around the world.

We are looking for those special and moving stories that are universally themed and will entertain viewers. Travel off the beaten path and seek out the stories that inspire and move you. Think big characters, personalities and story arcs, while remembering humour, drama, conflict and joy.
