FAVA is proud to present new works from their introductory digital film course, Video Kitchen. With a healthy mix of theory and practice, Video Kitchen offers aspiring film and video artists the opportunity to gain new skills and develop their own personal vision within a supportive and collaborative environment. Each student shoots and edits their own short film. The class culminates with a public screening at Metro Cinema.
Main Course Screening July27 | 3:30pm Metro Cinema at The Garneau Theatre (8712 109 St NW) Admission by cash donation
FAVA is thrilled to be premiering these brand new, local short films showcasing the work of their intermediate filmmaking class, Main Course. These emerging filmmakers bring their newly acquired skills to their own short film through all stages of development and shoot on cameras like the SR3, Arri III, or EPIC. Students learn budgeting, scheduling, advanced camera and production technique, advanced post-production workflow including sound mix and colour correction. The class culminates at Metro Cinema where the audience gets a chance to dip into a diverse range of content and style.
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.
