The Film and Video Arts Society - Alberta (FAVA) - In honour of our 30th anniversary and in celebration of Alberta Culture Days, FAVA would like to invite you and your students to an Open House on Friday, September 28th from 10am - 3pm. We are primarily looking to reach youth ages 14 - 17 years interested in media arts.
Media Art has become a key medium for youth to express themselves through; as such, we began a youth membership level in the fall of 2010 along with Spring & Summer Video Camps in order to address this demand and assure tomorrow’s filmmakers that they have a home with us.
Open House Schedule of Events:
10am - Tour the Facilities
10:30am - Brief Gear Demonstration on
RED One Camera
11:10am - Scratch Animation Workshop
12:30pm - Hot Dog Lunch
1:30pm - Prairie Tales 14 Screening
including Q & A with an Albertan filmmaker
*3:00pm (End of Day)
*The ending times are flexible to accomodate
students’ bus schedules.
Information regarding youth memberships and any upcoming spring and summer camps will be provided at the open house.
FREE Membership Draw
All students will have the opportunity to sign up for our e-bulletin and in turn be eligible for our FREE Membership Draw and FAVA Forage Cap which will be handed out before the end of the day. Membership will be good through to September 30, 2013.
If you are unable to attend our Open House, but would be interested in bringing your students in for a tour at another point, send us an email and we would be happy to schedule a time that would work. We also have an Open House for the general public on September 29th from 10am - 4pm.
