Welcome to the eighth annual F-O-R-M — a celebration of movement and the ever-evolving nature of film. This year, we’ve embarked on a journey that has seen us welcoming new team members, bid farewell to cherished ones, and constantly has us questioning and pushing the boundaries of what a film festival can be. Each of these elements has played a vital role in shaping us — a combination of our history and the endless possibilities we aspire to explore.
At F-O-R-M, the process of continuous learning and adaptation is not just a concept; it’s an integral part of our identity. We’ve come to understand that growth often comes hand in hand with the sweet discomfort of change. This year, we invite you to join us as we question the very essence of movement—what it means, who has historically embodied it, and how we can continue to challenge and redefine the very concept of movement within the body and beyond.
This year’s F-O-R-M is a testament to our willingness to try, to stumble, and to learn. It represents the beautiful, non-linear path of growth, and our commitment to continue creating spaces for artists and the festival to evolve and grow into the endless possibilities that movement, film and technology have to offer.
So, with that, welcome to F-O-R-M 2023! We invite you to immerse yourself, be curious, and explore your own path through this year’s hybrid format of films, events, workshops and more. Join us as we celebrate this year’s artists and communities, and look forward to a future filled with endless creative possibilities. Thank you for being a part of our story, and for helping us shape the festival as we know it. Enjoy the experience!
