If you have yet to go to the Yorkton Film Festival then I am afraid to say there are no two ways about it, you are missing out. Between the wackiness of the festival itself and the nutty, but absolutely lovable characters it attracts this is my top pick for film festivals in this country (now – don’t you go getting your panties in a knot, I likely haven’t made it to your film festival yet, and if I have, I apologize, but yff is just so damn special to me).
So why this Public Service Announcement? Well, I just wanted to draw it to your attention that submissions are open for the #yff11 Golden Sheaf Awards (until January 31st, 2011) and if you are smart (or at least organized) and get your entry in by December 15th, 2010, then you can take advantage of the Early Bird Special.
So whose eligible? Canadian Produced video content under 60-minutes in length or International Co-Productions with a Canadian Director, that’s been completed between February 1, 2010 and January 31, 2011. And yes, this does include web series and other video produced for the web.
