Yorkton Regional High School
My sincere thanks to you and to the festival committee for the kindness extended to my family during the festival. They enjoyed the films and the social events. Thank you for the tickets for the steak dinner and the banquet.
Nancy was walking on air -- she was so royally treated. She met so many interesting people and made so many valuable contacts. She will be able to give a good report to the film department of Lakehead University.
My best wishes for the continued future success for the festival.

Stories from 65 years of film
The Yorkton Film Festival researched and wrote its history as part of a 65th anniversary celebration in 2012. In 1947, volunteers established Yorkton’s International Film Festival, the first established in all of North America. Many considered the city too small, too isolated, for a major documentary competition.
