New Forms Media Society

New Forms Festival 2017



New Forms Media Society is pleased to announce the dates and location for our 2017 edition. This September 28-30th, we are thrilled to be back at the past location of The Centre for Digital Media at Great Northern Way, along with the newly built, state of the art Theatre at Emily Carr where we will be relaunching our audio-visual performance series.

We are excited to be able to once again transform this amazing venue and its recent additions to an immersive space for new and emerging practices. Performances and works will take place in the main hangar, the adjoining warehouse, and the outdoor areas surrounding. PK sound will be installed throughout.

The Audio-Visual Performance Series will run earlier in the evening, with the addition of an all day symposium at the Western Front on the Saturday, with further details to be announced shortly.

We are now offering a limited amount of $85 early bird discounted weekend passes for sale which will allow entrance to all events taking place from Sept 28-30th.

New Forms Media Society is a non-profit society and media arts organization founded in 2000 that nurtures and connects local and international artists, thinkers, practitioners, and the public through the annual New Forms Festival. The NFF is part of a larger, international, media and electronic music festival movement, which explores the ever-changing and evolving world of art, while creating a platform for artistic growth. The society wishes to make new media art, music, film, technology-based installation and performance accessible to a wider audience.
