FAVA FEST APRIL 17-21, 2018

favafest-logo-wh

FAVA’s 7th Annual FAVA FEST: Film and Video Arts Festival ran April 17-21, 2018. During the week we showcased films by FAVA filmmakers in Best of the Fest screenings with a diverse range of content and style. We partnered with DedFest on Thursday night to bring a screening of cult favourite Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II, where the audience could get dolled up in their best or goriest 80s prom attire. Our Friday Night Feature Event was a 25th Anniversary screening of Two Bothers, A Girl and a Gun, with a rare opportunity to see it in 35mm print. The screening was followed by a Q & A with filmmaker Bill Hornecker and actor Shaun Johnston (Heartland). Bill and Shaun were the recipients of our Outstanding Achievement Award in 2018 and we toasted their careers on Friday night as well. Closing night found us at a new location, the 16th floor of the Epcor Tower (10423 101 Street NW) for our FAVA GALA where we revealed the recipients of our Awards of Excellence and Production Awards. Guests mixed and mingled with Northern Alberta’s filmmakers, took a gamble on our silent auction  and sampled delicious cocktails from Strathcona Spirits Distillery and relaxed in our whiskey bar lounge. It was another great festival where we were able to shine a spotlight on the excellent work that is being made right here in Edmonton & Alberta.
