FAVA FEST 2017 festival details are now online! Join us April 18 – 22 as we celebrate our members’ work. This year the festival will include: an Opening Nigiht Kick Off revealing our Awards of Excellence recipients and the premiere of a new commissioned work by filmmaker Kyle Armstrong & musician Bradley J. Sime; the Best of the Fest – films by FAVA filmmakers; and the Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour. 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. We’ll screen their recently acclaimed film Weirdos and follow it up with an in-depth conversation with both artists in attendance. 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.
