Media Art Installation


Festival Teasers


We’re closing out the summer with FAVA’s 8th Annual FAVA FEST, running August 22-24. Join us as we showcase our members’ work in Best of the Fest screenings curated by our festival jury. We’re also thrilled to feature films by our Outstanding Achievement Award recipients Alex Viszmeg and Joe Viszmeg on both screening nights. Our closing night party is FAVA GALA, where we honour independent film, video, and media art in style with our Awards of Excellence and Production Awards. It’s also a great chance to check out FAVA’s new headquarters. We’ll showcase our new facilities at GALA with various activities including: screening the results of our Super 8 Challenge; a media art installation from Scott Portingale; an Arri Alexa demo, and more! Help us shine a spotlight on the great work that is being made in Edmonton & Alberta.

Full schedule coming soon!

More info on Alex and Joe Viszmeg coming soon!

Across the Land

Across the Land is an experimental “one shot” time-lapse film that transports the viewer from one side of Canada (Alaska Border) to the other (Cape Spear, Newfoundland). The 8165KM topographical experience is compressed into a final film with a 2 hour and 15 minute run time. The film will be looped as part of a projected installation. It too approximately 127,000 images to xerox the breadth of the nation and it is interpreted at 18fps. Time-lapse is a cinematographic technique that has played a large part in how I engage the filmmaking process. I’ve used it to animate, capture the growth of plants, and recreate cosmic/quantum structures. I am continually inspired by the compression of data, enabling the viewer to observe the parameters of their built in perception.
