The Screen is down and the projector lamp is warming up as the 13th annual Dawson City International Short Film Festival is ready to roll!
With films from Mayo to Cairo we have some great work made by Yukon filmmakers and from around the globe! There are fascinating workshops by festival guests, Peter Lynch, Caroline Christie, Guy Édoin and veteran Yukon filmmaker Carol Geddes. Alberta filmmaker Xstine Cook is working on a special project with Robert Service School here in Dawson on Thursday, the results of which will be shown at the Saturday afternoon Youth Screening.
In amongst 13 separate screenings of short films we have presentations by the KIAC Artists in Residence, Andreas Horvath (Austria) and Joanna Preistley (USA), a street BBQ and it all finishes up with our Made In The Yukon (MITY) Awards and a video dance party! And don’t forget to make a film in our 1 Minute Film Challenge!
It all starts on Thursday evening with a special free screening of Peter Lynch’s classic film, The Herd.
Weekend passes are now available at KIAC by calling 993-5005 or by dropping into the office. They can also be purchased at the festival starting Thursday evening and Friday starting at 1 pm.
