Ever since I became a FAVA Member I have recommended FAVA as a wonderful community and resource for filmmakers in any career stage or film enthusiasts simply looking to gain greater appreciation of the technical aspects of filmmaking. FAVA has been a great place to expand my network of collaborators; I have met many filmmakers through FAVA with whom I have collaborated on my own projects
FAVA is a super valuable resource for an independent filmmaker. They provide everything you need for filmmakers of any experience: education, access to the tools of the trade, space to shoot stuff in, occasionally access to work, and they welcome you into the community so that you can meet all the people you need to make your crew. My only regret is not getting involved with FAVA earlier in my life!
My Membership in FAVA brought me into an amazing creative community of strongly independent filmmaker who have support my development as a filmmaker every step of the way. Through the Membership I have learned the art of collaboration and how learning on the creative sensibility, knowledge, and expertise of a talented team can elevate the quality of a project beyond everyone’s expectations. I am deeply appreciative of all that FAVA has done to support my work over the years.
Over the years, FAVA has provided inspiring workshops, material resources, and a community of committed filmmakers who are both talented and generous in shaing their time and experience. FAVA is a dynamic creative community, and an essential presence in the local arts scene.
Joining FAVA was a big help in my journey to become a filmmaker. I was introduced to the world of film through the youth filmmaking course that was offered at the time, and I became hooked on the creative and collaborative process. I would highly recommend that anyone interested in becoming a filmmaker check out FAVA and their educational programs. It’s a fantastic resource to get your feet wet and connect with the energetic and passionate filmmakers in Edmonton community
FAVA is a great place to meet like minded artists, and also the culture of encouraging experimentation in video and film is very valuable and certainly helped myself push and try different things on various projects.
