Good as Gold; Dawson Film Mini-Festival raises funds for community arts collective

 

(((flicker)))

This fundraiser for Dawson City’s (s)hiver festival was a smashing success! Almost 40 people attended and we raised about $300 to support artistic activity in our community.

Thank you to KIAC for their support and guidance in helping us organize this screening, including Dan Sokolowski. Thank you to James Healey for volunteering his time and expertise in preparing the media and operating the projector. Thank you to Jen Gibbs for operating the lights and to the (s)hiver collective for helping with the bar, door and space preparations.

Thank you to our participating artists who made this such an engaging and special night. It was truly an honour. Here they are, in order of film presentation with the title of their works:

Lulu Keating / Dead Caribou Dialogue
Suzanne Crocker / Sock Hop
Karen MacKay / George Black Ferry
David Curtis / Closer to Thee
Dan Sokolowski / Still Life
Jeffrey Langille / chance appearance of the colour red, no.1
Christopher Healey / The Grand Journey Here
