Yorkton Film Festival - Call For Submissions

Screening May 23-26, 2019 in Yorkton, SK

Deadline: January 31, 2019

The 2019 call for submissions is now open. Choose from 18 entry categories and up to 4 accompanying categories to enter your film. All entries are adjudicated by members of the Canadian film industry across the country. 

Canadian filmmakers, producers and distributors are invited to submit their original work to the 2019 Yorkton Film Festival competition for the Golden Sheaf Awards. Canadian productions 60 minutes and under will be accepted. A Canadian production is defined as any production which would qualify as a certified production under current regulations applied by CAVCO. International co-productions are eligible only if the director is Canadian.

All entries must have been completed in the period between February 1, 2018 and January 31, 2019 and not have been entered in a previous Golden Sheaf Awards competition. Films that premiered at other festivals prior to February 1st, 2018, or were broadcast prior to that date, are not eligible to enter. Music videos or live performance recordings that showcase artistic achievement are eligible to be entered into the Performing Arts & Entertainment Category.

  • $95 for standard rate entries after end-of-day December 20, 2018
  • Student entries are $20 

A single production cannot compete in multiple categories. It is eligible to be entered in one main category only. Exception: If your production is part of an anthology documentary series and you are entering the series in the Documentary Series category (see definition of “Documentary Series” in Entry Categories) then single, stand-alone episodes of the series may also be entered in one or more of the other main documentary categories. A separate entry form and fee are required for each entry.

The final decision regarding interpretation of the rules and regulations including the eligibility of any production for admission into the competition will be the responsibility of the festival. All entry fees are non-refundable. Entry fees must be submitted with the production at time of entry.
