We’ll have burgers and veggie burgers available and you bring your favourite homemade or store bought dish.

As always, we’ll be unveiling the results of our Super 8 Challenge once the sun goes down. You can also check out what people got up to in the editing workshop with Joe Peeler upstairs in our Exhibition Suite. We’ll be selling raffle tickets and drawing the winners after the Super 8 Challenge screening. Don’t miss your chance to win a $1000 VIA Rail Voucher, a $700 gift certificate towards a FAVA class, a nice bottle of Cask Glen Moray Scotch, a $100 gift certificate from Ragazzi Bistro Italiano, and a Metro Cinema 6 Pack Movie Pass.

The summer party is just around the corner and we need some helping hands.  Volunteering at the summer party is a great way to connect with a lot of people from the membership.  You won’t be asked to volunteer the whole time so you’ll be able to sit back, relax and mingle with your fellow media artists. A reminder that you receive 20 FAVAbucks for every hour that you volunteer.  These FAVAbucks can be used for up to half of a rental invoice. Please email membership at fava dot ca if you are interested in any of the following:

  • Enjoy giving a space some atmosphere? Volunteer for our set-up crew
  • Like firing up the grill? Volunteer as a BBQ grill handler
  • One of the last to leave a party? Volunteer to help with tear down
  • Like chatting with people? Volunteer to sell raffle tickets
  • Have photography skills? Volunteer to take photos at the party

Thanks to everyone who has already put themselves forward to volunteer.  If you are interested in volunteering, please email membership at fava dot ca.

Each of FAVA’s annual classes ends in a special premiere screening of the finished student works. Most of our classes have screenings at Metro Cinema. Beyond class screenings, FAVA also hosts screenings for artists, partners and other organizations.


Summer Party

Come and relish the rare opportunity to connect with other members of the filmmaking community while enjoying a tasty burger and good music. We’ll be unveiling the results of our Super 8 Challenge!


Check out some of the annual conferences that FAVA Staff and Board can participate in, including information from AMAAS and IMAA.


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.


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.
