FORMations is a free, open to the public, movement and filmmaking jam. A space to spontaneously create, collaborate and network with other artists, filmmakers and movers! Any and all movement practitioners are welcome — bring your jump ropes, parkour skills, hacky sacks, dance moves, and a recording device! 

Post-FORMations, footage will be distributed amongst the participants of the contest. Afterwards, bring your footage to Cineworks for an Intro to Editing and Colour Correcting workshops to transform your footage into a 60 second film for our mini-contest!

This event is all ages friendly.
