Co-presented with SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs in partnership with Company 605.



Festival Of Recorded Movement (F-O-R-M) was founded in 2015 by emerging dance artist Sophia Wolfe, with organizational support and encouragement of Company 605, and with experienced producer and co-founder Kristina Lemieux, on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. It was created as a platform for movers and filmmakers to share and create short films that revolve around the body in motion. Film is a relevant medium today more than ever; it is a universal tool being used to showcase movement across all genres. Athletes, dancers and other movement practitioners turn to film as a way to show creative and engaging perspectives of their respective movement forms. F-O-R-M is a space and platform to celebrate and acknowledge the artists who are creating in this realm. It is an opportunity to bring them together to inspire and share with each other and with a wider audience. F-O-R-M has evolved into a community of artists and audiences who share this common interest; it is a place to explore, discover, learn and grow through this medium. F-O-R-M hosts workshops, events and jam sessions throughout the year in addition to our annual festival, which is in its fifth year in 2020.
