2007 Festival Poster.
When the Yukon River flooded in 1979 and the movie theatre closed down, there wasn't a place in Dawson City for folks to watch films together. By the late 1990's the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture began developing various arts programs.
It was 1999 when David Curtis came up with the idea of bringing film culture to Dawson City. By 2000, the Dawson City International Short Film Festival was up and running, showing short films from around the world in the ballroom of the newly renovated Odd Fellows Hall.
Since then, every Easter weekend, Dawson City has opened its arms to a migration of film lovers and filmmakers.
