YORKTON -- The Yorkton Film Festival is proud to announce that it is now accepting applications for the 2022 RBC YFF Mentorship program. This year, 2022, marks the second of a three year partnership with RBC and YFF to support the development of emerging filmmakers throughout Canada.

“We are ecstatic to continue moving forward with RBC and the generous support they’ve provided to continue to deliver this program,” said YFF Executive Director Randy Goulden. “Being able to play a role in identifying and supporting emerging talent throughout our country has been such a rewarding experience, not only for our mentees, but for the mentors and for us as well.”

The mentorship program is a participant-driven program that connects emerging filmmakers with established industry professionals who can provide expert level advice and networking opportunities to help emerging talents in Canada’s creative industries. The program is a 46 hour mentorship and guidance program that connects the participants with their mentor through in-person and digital means.

“It’s exciting to know that emerging filmmakers from across Canada took an interest in the inaugural year of the RBC YFF Mentorship program last year, with three participants ultimately selected. We can’t wait to welcome the next cohort of participants in 2022,” said Don Morris, RBC Regional Vice President, Southern Saskatchewan. “With their lived experience, mentors are invaluable in fostering the upcoming generation of diverse creative talent. RBC is thrilled to support aspiring filmmakers by helping grow their industry knowledge and networks, and investing in their creative expression and ideas through the power of mentorship.”

RBC provided the funding for this project as part of a three year program to foster investment in Canada’s creative sector by supporting emerging talents.

The deadline for applying for the 2022 Program is March 31, 2022. Selected applicants will be notified no later than April 22, and all successful applicants will have the opportunity to attend and take part in the 2022 Yorkton Film Festival. Applicants are encouraged to go to for further information and to submit their applications.
