Posted: May 9, 2012 65TH YORKTON FILM FESTIVAL TICKET DEADLINE
Source: Yorkton Film Festival
This year, the Yorkton Film Festival celebrates its 65 anniversary and we’re asking you to come and join us in the celebration. For 65 years, the Yorkton Film Festival has showcased the best in Canadian short film and brought together some of the biggest names in Canadian filmmaking. This year promises to be no different as we welcome:
Michel Roy – Chairman of the Board for Telefilm Canada
Tom Perlmutter – National Film Commissioner and Head of the National Film Board
Valerie Creighton – President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund
Joan Prowse – Co-founder of CineFocus Canada
And that is just a small selection of some of the panelists and speakers that we will be having at this year’s festival. We’re also offering a master-class, hosted by Tom Davidson, on shooting with DSLR video formats.
In addition to this, 4 lucky (gala?) attendees will win one of the following stock sets from footagefirm, the leader in providing HD and SD royalty-free stock footage from around the world:
18 Production music DVDs
10 After Effects Template DVDs
11 Super Slow Motion Stock Footage DVDs
10 HD Backgrounds DVDs
We also offer our unique Prairie experiences that make the Yorkton Film Festival what it is. From our LobsterBlast, where you can experience fine dining and skeet shooting, to an afternoon BBQ at the horse races, we have unique experiences that will leave you talking about them for years to come.
The only thing missing from this year’s festival is you; and you can change that by going to our website and registering to attend this year’s festival. But hurry, the deadline for getting tickets to our Golden Sheaf Awards Gala and our LobsterBlast event is Friday, May 18th.
So register today and experience North America’s longest running film festival for yourself.
