FAVA Filmmaker Series
A Roll For Peter
WEDNESDAY, May 17 | 8pm

FAVA Exhibition Suite, 2nd Floor (9722 102 St)
FAVA, in collaboration with Theatre of the New Heart is pleased to present “A Roll For Peter”, the touring program of films made in tribute to the late great filmmaker Peter Hutton.
Hutton, an American artist and educator, developed a unique perspective on both urban and remote landscapes through his images from the early 1970’s until his death in 2016. His obituary in the New York Times described his work thus:
All of his films were silent. Generally devoid of camera movement and montage, they suggest sketchbooks or photographic albums. Many are reveries in which the only animation in a precisely balanced composition might come from a wayward breeze or a slight shift in illumination. Most of his films were voluptuously monochromatic.
In the fall of 2016, filmmakers Mark Street and Jennifer Reeves, themselves former students of Hutton, put out a call for films to honour Hutton, each to be drawn from a single silent 100-foot roll of 16mm film. The call resulted in 35 films that screened in New York City and at Bard College in late 2016 on 16mm, and there the program was set to end. However, when Eric Thiessen, a contributor to the projct, began talking to others in the community, he found tremendous appetite for a tour of the films across North America. To date, the tour has amassed eighteen stops and counting. All films screen on 16mm and the show involves some dual projection.
Also accompanying the “A Roll For Peter” program will be Peter Hutton’s trilogy of films: New York Portrait Chapters I, II, and III (1979 – 1990). Filmmakers in the touring program include:

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.
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.
