YORKTON – The Yorkton Film Festival is proud to announce our next installment in OPEN Cinema program, our first for 2023.

“A new year means more great films as part of our OPEN Cinema program,” said YFF Executive Director Randy Goulden.  

OPEN Cinema will take place on Jan. 17 at 7:00pm at the Yorkton Public Library, screening Golden. The End of Ageism Directed by Scott Thompson Harper.

“If you’re over a certain age, you may have already experienced it. The painful realization you’ve been discriminated against due to age. One minute it’s an older person’s problem. Then, suddenly it happens to you, at work maybe, in a social setting, anywhere generations co-mingle. More than any other form of bias, ageism is truly universal. We all have a stake in this issue, yet it scarcely registers in the public discourse compared with sexism, racism or almost any other form of discrimination,” read the synopsis of the film.

The Yorkton Film Festival is pleased to partner with the Yorkton Public Library, Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission, Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Senior Mechanism.

This screening will also continue the YFF's OPEN Cinema Passport program. Collect four out of the six possible screening stickers to have your passport be eligible to win two tickets to the 2023 Lobsterfest event at the Yorkton Film Festival.

OPEN Cinema is presented 100 per cent free of charge and open to the public.
