20/20 Sponsorship: Corporate Supporters


Yukon Energy has been a sponsor of the Dawson City International Short Film Festival since its inaugural edition back in 2000. They have shown unwavering support of our initiatives, are enthusiastic about investing in our community and have been an integral part in the growing of the festival into an important date on the Yukon’s Cultural Calendar! Thank you Yukon Energy for empowering us!



Duncan Sinclair has supported KIAC for over a decade, but this year he’s quadrupled his annual gift in recognition of our 20th Anniversary. He’s got a lot to say about our work: “KIAC sets an exemplary Northern and Circumpolar example, contributes to new Artistic pathways, honours and presents Artists of all genres, disciplines and backgrounds without equivocation. I worked with a U.S. mineral exploration and development company that was active in the Klondike for many years. So I paid it forward by supporting KIAC.” Thank you Duncan for all the years of support.


The Downtown

Huge thanks to the Downtown Hotel for being a 2020 corporate sponsor at the Fortissimo (as loud as possible) level as well as for their ongoing sponsorship for many years. The Downtown has been providing accommodation for the artists in our Performing Arts Series; the many concerts and plays simply could not happen without this support. The Downtown has also given us rooms for students and instructors in our Youth Art Enrichment program–another great program that would not happen without their support.

A special thanks to the Downtown for finding rooms for the Sadies on Discovery Day weekend–not an easy feat on such a busy weekend!!!!

Huge thanks for Air North for their ongoing support for KIAC programs. This year the Air North contribution is going towards bringing the Sadies for Arts Festival.

Because of their contribution, these concerts will be fundraisers for KIAC’s 20/20 Campaign and for the ODD Gallery.

KIAC considers Air North our official airline and we appreciate their commitment to us and to many other community groups.


Henry Gulch Enterprises


We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the first corporate sponsor of our 20/20 Fundraising Campaign: Henry Gulch Explorations Ltd. John and Sylvia sponsored the launch and first fundraising event of the campaign, Petunia and the Vipers, Live at the Palace Grand. And a grand time it was!!!
