Ninti; indigenous word meaning smart, educated.
Ninti Media is an independent film and photography company specialising in indigenous and environmental conservation documentaries as well as digital educational content. The business was born in 2013 in the APY Lands of far north-west South Australia and has produced more than a dozen documentaries broadcast on SBS, NITV, ICTV, Foxtel's Aurora Channel, Channel 44 and streamed on SBS On Demand and IndigiTUBE.
Our films and photos reflect stories told by indigenous Australians that help educate a wider Australian audience.

From the farest reaches of the continent to your loungeroom desktop, Ninti Media is your portal to the people and places you won't find on news bulletins.
Ninti Media also works with schools to train students in a variety of creative processes to produce educational multimedia content, with outcomes aligned to the Australian Curriculum.
