FILM FEST WRAPS!

With the Northern Lights flickering, and the echoes of Drea and the Naysayers fading into the night, the 14th Edition of the Dawson City International Short Film Festival came to an exciting end! Traolach Ó Murchú's sensitive film Gordie won the MITY(Made in the Yukon) Award. Walks LIke, a film by Arlin McFarlane, (based on a story by Ivan Coyote) garnered the 2nd Plrize.

In the Emerging Artist Category, Karen MacKay's Launching of the George Black Ferry won the first prize, with Andrée Belanger's Tous ce que les homes savent (Everything Humans Know) took in the 2nd Prize.

The MITY youth award went to the animated Direct Wind, by Jessica Smith of Old Crow.

American animator Don Hertzfeldt's epic It's Such a Beautiful Day was awarded the Yukon Brewing Audience Favorite Award.

The Lodestar award for best Canadian or International film went to Guillaume Blanchet's The Man who live on his Bike.

The CBC North PSA Contest was won by Ross Burnet.

The festival (presented by the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture with Yukon Energy), had a steady stream of viewers thoughout all the screenings and overflowing workshops given by festival guests, Lulu Keating, Roslyn Muir, Michelle Latimer, Van Cooper and Ross Burnet.

We thank the hoards of volunteers who make this event possible (including the Dawson City Fire Department for flipping the burgers!), the filmmakers for sharing their work with and all the people who came in from the beautiful spring air to watch films!
