We're thrilled to be bringing you another year of F-O-R-M in the digital space! F-O-R-M 2021 will take place online September 13-18, co-presented by SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs.

Experience the future of movement-on-screen at F-O-R-M 2021! This year’s Festival of Recorded Movement takes place online, co-presented by SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs. Join us from September 13-18 for film screenings, workshops, and artist talks that bring together the youth and emerging artists who are expanding, interrogating, and redefining the form.

F-O-R-M 2021 features 20 short films from 9 countries around the world, and 9 world premieres from 11 youth and emerging commissioned artists. From meditations on connection and resilience in a world cut off by a pandemic, to whimsical character studies, and innovative use of technology, the F-O-R-M 2021 line-up will blow you away. Watch the trailer here.
