Dawson City International Short Film Festival 2013 / Film Fest

Taking It To The Streets

Dawson’s Film Fest went outside the box today, holding its traditional outdoor Street BBQ as part of closing activities. Festival goers and participants alike were able to take over Princess Street at Second Ave. and chow down on some delicious burgers and smokies. Appropriately enough, the flame broiling was provided by members of the Dawson City Volunteer fire department, with chief Jim Regimbal himself at the helm.

There was live music for the folks on the street too, as the barbeque saw the debut of Dawson’s newest musical group, Drea and the Naysayers. The ensemble played to an enthusiastic crowd, and although the sunshine and warmth that had graced us earlier in the day had abated somewhat by then, the overcast skies and cooler temperatures did not dampen the enthusiasm of the onlookers. Appropriately fed and fêted, the festival crowd then filed back to the ODD Fellows Hall at KIAC for the final screenings of the DCISFF, followed by the concluding Awards ceremony.
