Since the move to digital we've felt more connected to the F-O-R-M artists, audiences, and community—locally, nationally, and internationally. We're looking forward to sharing movement-based films by youth and emerging artists for a sixth year: this September you can expect to see more exciting and thoughtful intersections of movement and film that embody community and culture.
F-O-R-M’s Commissioning Fund Program is the heart of the festival. This year, 12 artists will be creating 10 films that will have their world premieres at F-O-R-M 2021.
Cindy Ansah • Sevrin Emnacen-Boyd • Alger Ji-Liang • Kyana Lyne + Siam Obregón • Danielle Mackenzie Long • Amanda Sum + Justin Calvadores
Sophie Dow • Sebastian Hillesbrand • Emma Morris • Mirusha Yogarajah
2021 brings together F-O-R-M's largest group of Commissioned Artists ever, made possible by the support of Co-Commissioning Partners Co.ERASGA and Tara Cheyenne Performance, Company 605, New Works, and Wild Mint Arts.
These 12 incredible artists are based across Turtle Island. As summer begins, they are diving deep into their projects, and their concepts are moving into reality. The Commissioned Artists are each exploring their own approaches to merging the body in motion with film, utilizing the medium as a way to connect to their individual identities and experiences. Approached with vulnerability, care, and authenticity, their journeys overlap and unearth a larger sense of community, inviting human connection through the screen.
