13th Dawson City International Short Film Festival

“As the light returns to our corner of Eden, let’s take a few hours this weekend to enjoy the light created by some passionate people.” -Dan Sokolowski, Festival Producer

The Dawson City International Short Film Festival is the big event of the spring season and a dozen filmmakers have come to town. Programs include Spell of the Yukon, The Midday Sun, At the Confluence, Beyond the Aurora and Out of the Cold.  My program with Andreas Horvath is at 3 PM on Sunday. Andreas will show a short documentary and I will show six animated short films and a clip from work-in-progress (below).

The opening short film program of Yukon filmmakers was absolutely wonderful. There is loads of talent here. Tomorrow I will jury the Emerging Yukon Filmmakers program and the judges will award three prizes. I am looking forward to all of the events, with 13 programs and over 100 short films to watch!

All of the screenings are in the elegant ballroom of the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture, in the former Odd Fellows Hall. It’s on Princess Street, just three blocks from my house. On the final evening, there will be a Street Feast and barbeque with Karaoke, outside on Front Street, right next to the Yukon River!

I am suddenly homesick and missing Paul and all of you.  Sigh.  xoxo

    Looks like you really know how to live up there. Hope you had standing room only for the film festival.
