FRAMED Nain was a five‐day film camp in which local participants learned both the art and business of filmmaking, gaining the tools and support to tell their own stories through film. Led by professional mentors, this hands‐on camp included the development, shooting, and editing of their first short film, katatjanik utippalianinga (The Return of Throat Singing). This film was made for and by the people of Nain, and is a testament to the rich talent and culture of Nunatsiavut.
