F-O-R-M’s Commissioning Fund is an exciting program offered by the festival for youth artists. F-O-R-M awarded five emerging artists with $1500 cash and equipment credit and access to the facility at Cineworks towards the creation of a brand new movement film that was screened and premiered on at the Vancity Theatre. These artists were carefully selected by our jury through an application process in which each of their proposals showed promise, dedication, talent and innovation towards the making of a new movement-centred film. Each artist was given free creative reign during their processes, and the results reflect upon the values of their own practices. These works involved collaboration and production with over 25 youth artists throughout the program. Congratulations to the artists who were involved in each project, and thank you for being a part of the first ever F-O-R-M Commissioning Funds Program.
