The RBC Yorkton Film Festival Mentorship Program is a two year initiative designed with the intent of connecting emerging filmmakers with mentors to provide them with a yearlong mentorship to help guide their careers into the national film and television arena.
In addition to our annual festival, YFF offers numerous opportunities to connect great Canadian cinema with audiences. This includes partnership with local and provincial organizations to host regular screenings of films submitted to YFF, a local film club held from October through March, and our Golden Sheaf Awards Tour DVDs.
All of our events are held free of charge and open to all. Check out our events calendar to find out when our next event is being held.
YFF has a small, but dedicated, group of staff working to ensure the best possible festival experience. Our staff is able to help you with any questions, concerns, or ideas you may have about our festival. Feel free to check out our staff directory to find the right person to get in touch with.
