The Film and Video Arts Scholarship was established by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts in 2012. One scholarship of $5,000 is awarded annually to a young Albertan film and video artist who shows extraordinary talent in a film and video arts form and who demonstrates clear educational or training goals.
Community Art is valued for its ability to bring people together in shared, collaborative, creative experiences to express the things that have meaning to us: where we’ve come from, where we’re going, our world, our fears, our dreams, our aspirations. It strengthens the community, develops creativity and increases awareness of the arts in our lives.
The principles behind Community Art projects are artistic exploration, active participation and intentional inclusiveness that allows communities to tell their own stories.
The Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA) is an artist-run centre that facilitates and supports the production, exhibition, distribution, and preservation of independent film, video and new media art in Northern Alberta.
FAVA’s vision is to offer excellent and nationally recognized resources and opportunities to a diverse community of artists, to create and showcase independent film, video and media art.
