#yegfilm is a non-profit collective meant to connect filmmakers and accelerate film production in Edmonton
We were thrilled to win a #yeggie in 2014 for best in Film and Television.
Some of what we do!
Provide filmmaking training and workshops
#yegfilm has recently started the "#yegfilm Writing Academy" in which filmmakers can learn how to tell the best stories they can.
We make films! The image above was taken on a short film set that was shot in a few hours -- late on a Tuesday night. Suprisingly there were a ton of volunteers interested in helping out, and the film was shown at Mostly Water Metro Shorts where it tied for 3rd place.
Make more films!
This is a still from our short GRAPHIC EQUIPMENT. We shot this film in three hours. Practice is important in filmmaking, so #yegfilm provides low cost ways to get experience making films, and we are not afraid to make mistakes!
Even more films!
This is a set photo from our project GOOD VIDEO. This was a great shoot -- even though it was a night shoot this was by far our biggest crew. We learned a lot on this set, and can't say thanks enough to everyone who was willing to forgo sleep to help make a film.
Where we meet!
We are lucky to be able to work with Startup Edmonton as a space for various #yegfilm events.
The historic Mercer Building is located at 10363 104 Street in downtown Edmonton. It houses several startup and design companies, as well as a tavern and coffee house. This facility is a wonderful location to get together and meet other local filmmakers in person to find that next project to get working on!
