The Dawson Film Lab is a unique filmmaking experience taking place in Dawson City.
Four established Yukon filmmakers will invite four established filmmakers from outside the Yukon to work together on short films for six days. These regional and national filmmakers will be the Film Lab Mentors.
In addition, eight intermediate filmmakers (Yukon residents who have completed at least one film) may apply to work on their own projects alongside these mentors during the same time period.
The lab is intended to be a collaborative exchange of ideas and knowledge. Participants must provide a film outline or synopsis at time of application. Projects are open to any genre. It is expected that all participants will have input/impact on several projects during the week. This intense week of filmmaking will culminate in a screening event on September 8th, 2019 in the KIAC Ballroom.
Applicants are reminded of the feasibility of being able to complete their film in six days. This will be taken into account in the application process.
We are opening up this workshop for 2 possible dates. August 25-30 or September 3-8. Please indicate which dates you prefer. The dates will be decided by the most applicants for those dates.
Note: This is not an introductory film workshop.
