Canadian filmmakers, producers and distributors are invited to submit their original work to the 2018 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.
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 a 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.

The project must be submitted to the festival in the form of a video walkthrough of the project and will be judged based on the project’s execution of their stated intentions. We suggest a walk through length of approx 7 - 14 minutes.
