Canadian Short Screenplay Competition at the Festival

The Canadian Short Screenplay Competition (CSSC) -- the most prestigious short film script contest in Canada -- continues its partnership with the Yorkton Film Festival (YFF), the oldest and longest running film festival in North America.

On Saturday May 28, 2011, David Cormican, Producer and CSSC Founder, will present the writing competition’s top prize, the Golden Cinema Award, to the writer of the best short script for 2010.

The CSSC’s finalists are encouraged to attend the festival, which runs May 26-29, 2011 and to partake in the many films, workshops, panels networking opportunities and Golden Sheaf Awards Gala.

One writer will walk away with top honours: $1,000 cash prize sponsored by Year of the Skunk Productions and their very own Best In Fest trophy commemorating their achievement in screenwriting. One of the finalists will have their screenplay made into a short film to be screened at next year’s YFF.
