10 Yukon films by 10 Yukon filmmakers
Since 2000, there has been great expansion in Yukon Filmmaking, from a few interspersed films, to the ability to hold an entire evening of Yukon work and also to spread it throughout the festival, seamlessly blending Yukon media works with films from outside the territory.
As a festival that celebrates the short film as an artistically viable form of expression and with the 10th Anniversary of the festival occurring in 2009, we have commissioned 10 short films by some of the Yukon’s established filmmakers.
The festival acknowledges the symbiotic relationship of its health and the robustness of the regional artists it supports. Giving these 10 artists a chance to produce a work that is creatively autonomous benefits the content of the project and also the growth of each artist. The dynamism of putting this creativity into one project will be a historical marker in the lifespan of the festival.
Each filmmaker was given a word to start and end their film on. This will link their film to one of the other works. They will then be linked in exquisite cadaver fashion and premiered at the 2010 Dawson City International Short Film Festival.
The participating filmmakers are Dennis Allen, Marten Berkman, Andrew Connors, Duane Gastant’ Aucoin, Daniel Janke, Lulu Keating, Celia McBride, Troy Suzuki, Veronica Verkley and Werner Walcher.
