The 13th Dawson City International Short Film Festival begins this evening with the “Buried Treasure” screening of The Herd. Peter Lynch, director of the 1999 NFB film, will be on hand and will host a Q&A afterwards. Lynch, whose work includes Project Grizzly and Cyberman, is one of Canada’s most widely-acclaimed filmmakers.
Although my residency at Berton House just started last Friday, when festival producer Dan Sokolowski asked me to help blog about the weekend, I jumped at the chance. So watch this space for more updates. And if you’re on Twitter, the festival’s hashtag is #dcisff.
The full festival schedule is here.
