Thanks for a great experience at the festival. It worked for me on several levels and was a good opportunity to reconnect with old friends and associates as well as meet some very interesting and talented people. I also advanced a couple of project. Bonus! Throughout it all, your team of staff and volunteers were very professional and helpful.

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.
