YORKTON – Executive director of the Yorkton Film Festival, Randy Goulden, was recognized for her many years of hard work and dedication to the festival.
The awards gala went off script for several minutes when Keith Hayward, Co-chair of the YFF, was called to the stage to recognize the Executive Director of the film festival for her years of dedication to making the event a reality.
"There's one person – above all – that deserves our thanks and recognition," said Hayward before presenting a bouquet to Goulden to the standing ovation of the people in attendance.
"Goulden has been a champion of the tourism and arts industry in Saskatchewan for over twenty years, working with both Tourism Yorkton and the Yorkton Film Festival," read a short bio on the film festival's website.
"It is so heartwarming to know that the whole community rallies around the Yorkton Film Festival, volunteers, sponsors, and film festival staff," said Goulden in a phone call with Yorkton This Week, adding, "it is truly an annual, national community event."
