Check out our NIFF 2023 poster, in all it's glory! We're so happy to have Niffy all over our promotional material this year.

Niffy is our beloved NIFF 2023 character, designed by NIFF board member Cherylanne James. Cherylanne is an Anishnaabekwe Visual Artist/Illustrator and professor from Chippewas of Rama First Nation. If you're interested in seeing more of Cherylanne's work, you can follow her page here.


Time to get planning for NIFF 2023! For just $12 a show, you can see some groundbreaking local, provincial and International Indigenous art. 100% of ticket proceeds will go back to NIFF Artists and you can feel good about supporting them in their creative expressions and see some pretty rad performance while you're at it!
