About

James Dixon (née Paschke) is an Indigenous filmmaker and artist based in Winnipeg. With a BA in Film and Native Studies from the University of Manitoba, James’ style combines abstract collaging and documentary aesthetics, to create work that revolves around his personal process of decolonization. Born in Saskatoon and raised in rural Manitoba, his work is regional, autobiographical and experimental.

His films have exhibited widely in Canada and abroad, including the Biindigaate Indigenous Film Festival, Leiden International Film Experience and MIX NYC. James’ work has been broadcast on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network and collected by the Alexander Street Press. He has also produced an installation of his paintings with the Virden Arts Council.

James is an accomplished film educator who has worked with Freeze Frame, the Winnipeg Film Group, and the Central Canada Film Group, providing workshops on film history, documentary film making and editing for both youth and adults.
