FAVATV was founded as an independent media arts distribution platform by The Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA). So what’s that mean? We collect and distribute independent Canadian films created by members of arts co-ops across the country. And we do it all for free, without ads.

Our collection is always growing and so is our list of contributors. To contribute your work you must first be a member of any media arts organization that uses Filmreel for managing their program. While the current list of organizations is short we are working to expand it. By clicking on the upload film button on the top of the screen you can find instructions on how to upload your master for backup and we leave it up to you if you want to make it public on FAVATV. Then you can and begin collecting royalties! That’s right, we even pay the creators.

It should be noted that FAVA TV is a curatorial initiative. Not all submissions will find a home on FAVA TV.
