There are stories of movement all around us. Stories that have the power to move us and connect us. Stories that challenge what we think we’re capable of, pushing us to new limits. Stories that make us recognize the little ways in which we are already moving through our lives.
These are some of the stories that are inspiring us right now.
F-O-R-M Film Festival
The moment we were introduced to F-O-R-M, we knew we had to share what they were doing. Having the opportunity to highlight these incredibly talented filmmakers, performers, and creators is a dream. The way in which they approach movement on film is truly unique and their goal of creating a space and platform to celebrate and acknowledge the artists who are creating in this realm is inspiring and perfectly aligned with our vision.
Festival Of Recorded Movement (F-O-R-M) was founded in 2015 by emerging dance artist Sophia Wolfe with the support of Company 605 and Kristina Lemieux. The Vancouver-based festival was created as a platform for movers and filmmakers to share and create short films that revolve around the body in motion.
The festival officially starts on September 19th and runs through until September 21st with multiple showtimes and installations.
NM produces instructional fitness programs and timeless stories that highlight the intersection of creativity and movement. Our vision is to connect audiences to a new experience of fitness. To learn more about NM, visit About Us.
The NM team is made up of people whose current movement practices have grown out of many different backgrounds and relationships with movement, beginning in our childhoods. Memories of team practices, dance recitals, and time spent playing outdoors is something most of us have in common. It’s interesting to look at how those practices have changed and evolved over time. In Issue 01 of Movement by NM, a magazine coming this fall that explores life in movement, we pay tribute to those young athletes.
Creativity Requires Movement
Creativity and movement are practices of growth. To be creative is to move forward. Inherent to these practices are stories; what is story but a narrative of motion from one place to the next?
In Movement by NM, our upcoming print magazine, we feature passionate creatives of all types; a music video director talks about the speeds and rhythms that not only make up a day on set, but act as a creative tool within the finished product. ‘Artist’ may not be the first term to come to mind when describing a professional football player, but in The Athlete & The Artist, we learn how Dom Termansen embodies the surprising similarities of both personas.
While the stories featured are diverse, what they have in common is a unique approach to movement, and a harnessing of its power for growth and self-expression. The expansive breadth of these stories resonated with our own love of artful movement. We hope you find inspiration in them, too.
