One very exciting event we got to travel to as part of our film was Moments Fest, a huge hardcore music festival held for the last 4 years in Siksika nation, just west of calgary. We got the chance to meet and talk with Cory White from No More Moments, whose members founded the festival in 2014 and put in an enormous amount of work to keep it growing with each successive event! Talking to Cory and the drive behind bringing back Moments Fest every year gave us a perspective on running events for the good of the community above all other factors - to give a stage and an opportunity to bands and fans alike who may not always have easy access to events like this one. The payoff for Moments Fest is to create moments of engagement for the people who play the music and the people who love it, and to provide an inclusive and accessable space to anyone who shares their passion for music. Growing from under a dozen bands in its first year to 30 acts in its latest year, we heartily recommend heading out and supporting the fest if you are a punk/hardcore/trash/metal fan, or if you love huge enegertic festivals in general! See Cory in our documentary, The End Is Near, link in our description! . . . . . #music #siksika #momentsfest #nomoremoments #punk #hardcore #thrash #metal #festival #alberta #siksikanation #indigenous #indie #film #documentary #theendisnear #theendisnearfilm

Tab and Lucas of @thesewingmachinefactory talking about how rewarding it is to be apart of the music community and why it's important to support existing spaces. Check them out in the full documentary! #yeg #theendisnear #theendisnearfilm #thesewingmachinefactory #localmusic #localvenue #supportlocal
This week we have the pleasure of featuring Tab and Lucas from edmonton's @thesewingmachinefactory ! Not only do they both already have long and storied histories working in edmonton's music community but it was also amazing to get to talk to folks who had managed to reach a point of sustainability in a DIY venue and get to pour a huge amount of love and energy into their community! Both Tab and Lucas work with the spirit of creating a supportive and accessible stage for all creators. Their hard work creates an intimate atmosphere that nutures and promotes music and art with community-mindedness always at the core. Together they have overcome hurdles and navigated stumbling blocks to reach a point where they are both working fully at a thing that they are passionate about, and that passion is felt and returned by the people who have come to love their space. It was very inspiring to get to see their perspective on the satisfaction that can come from the work of fostering community and seeing the return in continued growth, and the type of work that they do is vital to keeping the spirit of DIY alive. To see more of them in our documentary, The End is Near, check out the link in our bio and watch now! . . . . . #music #yeg #local #diy #venue #sewingmachinefactory #thesewingmachinefactory #queer #inclusive #nonbinary #alberta #indie #film #documentary #storyhive #theendisnear #theendisnearfilm

We had such a great interview with @mechaelamarr ! She had so many great things to say about why @flipmusicfest is so important to the Lethbridge community. #theendisnearfilm #theendisnear #localmusic #localarts #music #femme #femmefest #feminist #interview #nonbinary #intersectionalfeminism #lethbridge #alberta #indie #queer
For our feature this week we talked to @mechaelamarr , one of the founders of the spectacular @flipmusicfest ! Flip fest had its first festival only last year but it has accomplished amazing work in fulfilling its mandate and creating and inclusive, femme-fronted music event for all! Their committee is comprised of a lot of dedicated and talented female creators and voices, and they pour an incredible amount of hard work and thoughtfulness into the creation of inclusive spaces in order build a better community. Mechaela herself has a long history both in music and arts curation and in advocating for inclusive feminism and safer spaces, and brings incredible mindfulness and compassion into the work that she does. Our conversion with her was astute and insightful, and showed her deep passion for the thought and intention behind initiatives like flip fest and other like-minded projects that try to break the mold! Go check out flip if you haven't already, they just had their second festival and are going strong! Can't wait to see what the future holds for all of these amazing femmes!! . . . . . #localarts #flipfest #yql #yqlmusic #lethbridge #queer #femme #feminist #intersectional #supportlocal #theendisnear #theendisnearfilm #indie #film #festival #music #flip #fest #documentary #lgbtq #nonbinary #alberta #women
