Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society and the [Festival of Recorded Movement](http://www.f-o-r-m.ca/) present a full-day workshop for filmmakers, choreographers, and dancers who want to make dance film; and for any artists who want to exercise their visual imaginations.

Many filmmakers try to film dance choreographed for stage. This often fails, since dance has vastly different needs than film. Film cuts the world into angles, while stage dance is conceived as a continuum from a single angle. Time and space are more compressed on film than on stage. Even the body of the solo dancer struggles with the camera, its full vertical shape resisting the horizontal frame. To make true dance film, choreographers must understand the frame and directors must learn the kinetics of dance. Going from stage to screen starts with choreographing and lighting shot-by-shot, specifically for the camera.

In this intensive workshop, participants will study some core methods, watch films and clips that use them, and practice with camera, lights and a dancer. Topics will include composition and lighting within the frame, choosing angles and working within them, cutting as choreography, rhythmic and overtonal montage, creative use of discontinuous and non-matching action, solving non-stage location challenges, and improvisational methods.

Instructor and Filmmaker Daniel Conrad’s dance films have screened at numerous festivals including Locarno, Montréal World, London Int'l, Hamburg Kurzfilm, Valladolid, Seattle Int'l (Best of Fest Shorts), New York Dance on Camera (2 Silver Awards), Golden Prague (Dagmar & Vaclav Havel Prize), Toronto Moving Pictures (Audience Choice Award), Dance Camera West (Los Angeles), Vancouver Int'l, and many more. His work has been prchased by PBS, the CBC, ZDF, CFCF, SCN, TVE, Ovation, ARTV, Knowledge, Bravo, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Program:
Gone South: How Canada Invented Hollywood (100 min)
Director: Leslie D. Bland (DOC BC)
The feature length documentary Gone South: How Canada Invented Hollywood is a hilarious and investigative look at the long history and major influence Canadians have had on the development of American pop culture. It features exclusive celebrity interviews and classic archival images from the very beginnings of Hollywood right through to the present day. Gone South presents an historical overview of the influence of Canadians in Hollywood – for example, three of the first four Oscar winners for best actress were Canadian, and so was Louis B. Mayer, who founded MGM studios; also Mack Sennett, who discovered Charlie Chaplin, created the Keystone Cops, and essentially invented comedy on film – as well as thematically linked interviews with current Canadians working in Hollywood. The whole point of the documentary is to present the argument that without the slow and subversive influence of Canada, Hollywood as it is known would not and could not exist. Celebrities appearing in the film include Howie Mandel, David Foster, Alex Trebek, Alan Thicke, Shannon Tweed, Dave Thomas, Tommy Chong, Will Sasso, Neve Campbell, Harland Williams, Monty Hall, Arthur Hiller, David Shore, Ted Kotcheff, The Tenors, Calum Worthy, and Erin Karpluk. Leslie D. Bland has produced, written, directed, and performed in over 150 professional projects in film, television, radio, and live theatre. Currently Leslie is the President of Less Bland Productions. He is currently producing and directing the documentary series The Wine Guys: Grape Escapes, and the sitcom series Ollie and Emma for Telus Optik. He has previously produced and directed the award-winning feature length documentary Gone South: How Canada Invented Hollywood featuring Howie Mandel, David Foster, Neve Campbell, David Shore, and Alex Trebek for theatrical release and broadcast on Super Channel, and the all female comedy series She Kills Me for APTN. From 2001 – 2010, Leslie was the Artistic Director of Kaleidoscope Theatre in Victoria. He is also the co-founder and for 12 years was the Executive Producer of Edmonton’s Stage Polaris. An accomplished dramaturge and playwright, Leslie has had ten adaptations/plays produced professionally at theatre companies across Canada. He has also written a fantasy mystery book The Other Side of the Curtain.

The Empirical Rise of Ashley Callingbull (20 min)
Director: Shannon Kaplun (WIFTV)
Today she wears the crown of Mrs. Universe, but the rise to fame and acclaim for young aboriginal woman Ashley Callingbull has been any thing but a smooth stroll down the catwalk. Ashley’s story is one of childhood struggle and lifelong healing that has paved the way to being an inspiration for today’s youth. Ashley is the very definition of a role model. After placing in the 2010 Miss Universe Canada competition, she landed a character on Gemini-award-wining Blackstone. She does charitable work for youth globally and she uses her fame to tell her story of struggle and hope, to inspire youth. Ashley has spoken at Harvard, Ted Talks and We Day all by the age of 23. Ashley is not just a pretty face, she is using her role as the first Canadian and the first aboriginal person to hold the Mrs. America title, to shine light on heavy issues affecting Canadian First Nations, with the goal to help empower her people.

Sylvia joined Moving Images Distribution in 1987. She is a founding member of Women in Film + Television Vancouver, serving on its Board from 1992 to 1994. She has served on Boards of Directors for The Canadian Independent Film & Video Fund and the Indpependent Media Arts Alliance, and was also a founding member of Photographers Gallery in Saskatoon, later to become PAVED Arts. Vancouver's Women in Film acknowledged her contributions to the local community with the Wayne Black Service Award at its Women in the Spotlight Awards. Acutely aware of the challenges and sacrifices artists face in their work with the moving image, Sylvia respects those who continue to explore the medium and work to tell stories with integrity. Connecting such work with audiences brings great satisfaction.

Based in Vancouver, BC, Moving Images Distribution's roots lie within the independent film and video community. During the 1970s, a group of talented filmmakers began developing ways to increase the profile of their work, creating Canadian Filmmakers Distribution West, an organization that changed its name to Moving Images Distribution in 1994 to more accurately reflect its inclusion of electronic media in its distribution of the moving image. It launched its collection on the internet in 1995, broadening its reach for Canada's internationally acclaimed media artists and with award-winning documentaries, animation, short fiction and personal narrative works. Moving Images distributes over 1,000 works that are inspiring and innovative in approach and are concerned with social justice. With its branding of "film for thought", Moving Images has a focus on work that provokes, amuses and explores the perimeters of the medium used in its creation.

The Sound We See: An Old Crow Village Symphony (2015)
Director: The Community of Old Crow
29 min

Proverb: it takes a village to raise a child; To instil a set of values, perspectives, culture, and history of time and place of being in the world. A celluloid based interpretation of this precept - as the life and livelihood of a Northern community – is realized in this conceptual documentary installation piece.

Through documentation, experimentation and animation with super 8mm film, hand processing techniques and artistic conceptualization, a harmony of aural and cinematic composition artistically present the cultural environment of a little known sliver of Indigenous life in the North. Created by members of the Vuntut Gwitchin community of Old Crow, Yukon, ranging from 6 to 82 years of age and of varying experience with moving film technology, this 24-minute piece brings to life one 24-hour period during one of Old Crow's most important times of the year: September's hunting, drying, smoking and berry picking season.

The Sound We See is a framework for exploring place through analogue filmmaking, established by Lisa Marr and Paolo Davanzo –– traveling Canadian filmmakers and founding members of Echo Park Film Center, Los Angeles. Discovering and redefining techniques of past avant grade urban documentarians, the project has sparked a global ‘Slow Film’ movement with youth and their communities in Canada, USA, Netherlands, India, Germany, Vietnam and UK. Marr and Davanzo have recently completed a Sound We See project in Vancouver with youth in collaboration with Cineworks and The Gathering Place Community Centre, which premieres at Gathering Festival, Vancouver, on June 19.


Uulx – The Scratcher (2014)
Director: Banchi Hanuse
6 min 7 s

Uulx follows a hunter who has a strange encounter with a supernatural being which forces him to reevaluate his connection to the natural world. This purely visual narrative explores myth and legend amidst the majestic winter landscape of northern BC.The film was shot in March 2014 in the remote and rugged plateau above Bella Coola, BC on the overlapping territory of the Nuxalk and Ulkatcho people -around a 10 hour drive from Vancouver. It was a grueling shoot where the crew had to wear snowshoes in -15 °C weather, plus wind chill, and transport gear with snowmobiles and hand-pulled toboggans. Amy Belling, the director of photography / camera operator, had to shoot the handheld scenes walking in snowshoes in 4 feet deep snow. The title “uulx” is a scratcher -a sasquatch-like supernatural being that can shape shift into a deer.

"The film is inspired by a true story told to me by a friend about a mysterious and life-changing experience he had in the middle of winter hunting in Montana," says Hanuse. "I was intrigued by his story, as it was a contemporary tale that reminded me of the ancient Nuxalk stories I heard as a child about supernatural beings and shaped shifters. Many of us nowadays are disconnected from the natural world and the spiritual experiences that come with it."

Banchi Hanuse is a graduate of the University of British Columbia. She began her career as a motion picture camera assistant and went on to become the co-creator and associate producer of the Our World First Nations language project at the National Film Board of Canada. Cry Rock is her directorial debut.


A Look at the Life of Morgan Green (2007)
Director: Kelvin Redvers
12 min

Morgan Green is a young, Tsimshian carver from Prince Rupert. She is also a fashion designer; a knife maker, pottery maker, painter, art teacher, mask maker, and more. This 23-year-old Aboriginal artist leads a unique life in eastside Vancouver and is very passionate about every art form, whether it be traditional or contemporary. Her world is an amazingly inspiring one, told with a youthful charm and a deep love for all things artistic. This documentary follows a few days in her life, as she spends time shaping materials and ideas in her studio and the community of which it is a part, followed by award-winning young Métis filmmaker Kelvin Redvers.

Kelvin Redvers is a multiple award-winning Aboriginal filmmaker and actor. Born and raised in the small town of Hay River, Northwest Territories, Canada, at the age of 15 he started a video production company called Crosscurrent Productions. Redvers attended Simon Fraser University, while at the same time continually finding success at film festivals in Canada and around the world for his works. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Film Production, and was awarded the Gordon Shrum Gold Medal, the most prestigious award available to any student at SFU.

Immediately after university, Redvers was hired as a producer and narrator on the acclaimed Aboriginal current affairs show First Story, where the first episode he produced, Black Blood, went on to win a prestigious Jack Webster Award, as well as winning the RTNDA Trina McQueen Award for Best News Information Program in B.C. In the three seasons working at the show, he was able to earn five journalism awards, including a second Jack Webster Award. His first step into the world of major film festivals was with his short film, The Dancing Cop, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.


Regarding Vancouver (2010)
Director: Laurynas Navidauskas
22 min 30 s

Regarding Vancouver looks at the mythologies and image-making of the city. Black and white high contrast images of the city, shot with a fixed camera, form the visual foundation in the work and are married with a stunning soundscape. From conversations with Vancouver architects Matthews Soules and Annabel Vaughan, poet and author Roy Miki, writer Derek Simons, Métis filmmaker and community planner Kamala Todd and SFU professor Jerry Zaslove, director Laurynas Navidauskis inserts compelling thoughts on Vancouver's infrastructure, the relationship between infrastructure and the land this city occupies, and the history Vancouver manages both to highlight and erase. The comments drift through a soundscape constructed by archival sound of Vancouver by the World Soundscape Project and an original score by Tom Fesnoux.

Laurynas Navidauskas began his art practice in photography before moving to film in the program at the School of Contemporary Arts, Simon Fraser University. After completing a BFA there, he pursued a Masters in Communications at SFU, creating this film as part of his Masters degree. Navidauskas work develops his interest in urban environments, everyday life and memory. Regarding Vancouver was included in the exhibition WE Vancouver: 12 Manifestos for a City at the Vancouver Art Gallery, February 2011.
