Avalon Fast

Film & Writing

This is me. This is where I will be sharing my film, my writing and hopefully selling some stuff.

 
 

Avalon began making short films independently at the age of 8 and has continued to create film ever since. After high school graduation, Avalon was able to start her film career professionally. At 18 Avalon wrote “Violets Bloom In April,” a short film that was selected for the B.C. student film festival. There, she and her film crew won first place in the long-form category, and Avalon was awarded best director. In 2019, Avalon wrote and directed her Horror short “Night Trouble,” which was screened at the "Magic of Horror Fest" and also took special interest from a Fantastic Fest programmer. TIFF programmer Peter Kaplowsky noted “Night Trouble” as a "Compelling piece of filmmaking" as well as his favorite short of 2019. Avalon was accepted to both the Vancouver Film School and Concordia University for creative writing. Avalon chose against attending school and instead moved to Vancouver to continue writing and directing independently. Avalon wrote her feature film “Honeycomb” in 2019, and filming took place that summer on Cortes Island. She spent the next year in post-production, where she independently edited “Honeycomb.”
Since its completion, “Honeycomb” has received excellent feedback and a great deal of interest. Honeycomb's official selection for the Slamdance 2022 narrative features category is a victorious accomplishment for Avalon Fast.
