MôTif is a multimedia production company that supports and creates art projects, focusing on the underrepresented and the environment.


On August 3-5, 2018 MôTif is bringing the first MôTif Film Festival to Fairbanks, Alaska. MôTif strives to turn our festival into a platform and outlet for voices fighting to be heard. Our objective is to touch communities of storytellers and audiences across regions, genres, ethnicities, gender, and orientation to include, deepen, and expand our connections to diverse and underrepresented groups around the world. In doing this, we hope to expose the issues affecting our society in an environment that allows us to have an open dialogue, foment action, increase the diversity of projects, and inspire artists to tell their stories.

MôTif Film Festival was created by dedicated artists, scientists, anthropologists, and filmmakers who understand what an event like this can and should offer its participants.
