The Yorkton Film Festival is back with another Open Cimena installment to mark Remembrance Week.
Tonight (Tues) at 7 p.m. they will be screening “Why Vimy Matters” – a short segment produced for The National that explores the battle of Vimy Ridge and it’s impact on Canada.
Yorkton Film Festival Executive Director Randy Goulden says there will be two speakers after the screening.
“This is the third year we’ve had both Steve Variyan, who is a retired history teacher at the (Yorkton) Regional High School, and Perry Ostapowich who is a history teacher there,” she said. “They really bring a whole new aspect of what to watch for in the film and then really talking about the film itself.”
It’s free of charge and open to the public, plus an incentive for those who participate in the Open Cinema Passport Program.
By collecting four out of six screening stickers, participants are eligible to win two tickets to the 2019 Lobsterfest event at the Yorkton Film Festival.
“Why Vimy Matters” will be screened at the Yorkton Public Library.
