A walk in the Badlands of Alberta, there is a mystery. An early work from Bill Hornecker that emphasis his connection to the land.
Magnectic Reconnection | 12:30 min 2012 Kyle Armstrong

The Screenings Calendar is a combination of all FAVA screenings. For other calendars select from the following:
FAVA FEST is FAVA’s annual celebration of film, video and media art created by our membership. It includes screenings of local and international work, artist talks, and cash awards for the year’s best at FAVA GALA.
Check out some of the annual conferences that FAVA Staff and Board can participate in, including information from AMAAS and IMAA.
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.
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.
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.
