We’re thrilled to announce Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo) and Daniel MacIvor (Governor General award-winning playwright) will be showcased at our Friday Night Feature.

Closing night finds us back at FAVA headquarters for our Backyard Bash where we will announce the recipients of our Production and Distriution Awards, as well as our Audience Choice Award, and celebrate Selwyn Jacob – recipient of FAVA’s Outstanding Achievement Award.

bucks

FAVA Bucks

Twenty FAVA Bucks are awarded for each volunteer hour worked. These Bucks can then be used to offset up to half of a member’s production invoices. FAVA Bucks will not be accepted for workshops, membership dues, film or tape purchase, or special events. Our system rewards those who contribute their energy and time to the organization, and gives opportunities to become immediately involved in the operations and projects of the co-operative.

Volunteering

All members are required to volunteer 12 hours per year. Members will be notified of many specific volunteer opportunities. Out of town members are encouraged to be creative with their voluntary contributions – the writing of articles, the scouting of potential gear acquisitions, etc.

Volunteer Opportunities

FAVA will endeavor to post all the upcoming Volunteer Opportunities right here on the website, as well as our e-bulletin.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact the office at 780-429-1671 or email membership at fava dot ca.  If you have an idea for a volunteer opportunity, let us know as well.

– We are always in need of admin support.  Please contact us at least a week in advance with your availability and we’ll arrange a time.

FAVA Supports Equity

FAVA is firmly committed to ensuring full access to the organization and its resources to all people, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, age or ability.

Member in Good Standing

To remain in good standing at the co-op, members must fulfill the mandatory 12 hours of volunteer service per year, maintain a clean account and strive to serve the co-op to the best of their ability.
