Film fest movies to be screened in east

The fourth annual SkeenaWild Film Festival named its winners and that the films will be shown to a new audience.

THE FOURTH annual SkeenaWild Film Festival (SWFF) announced its winners and that all of the films will be shown in Toronto.

The trip comes thanks to “passionate” local support for the works when they were shown in seven communities where more than 600 participants cast their votes for their favourite films and photos.

In the five categories, there were more than 150 submissions.

The Short Film top three winners are How to Catch a Dog by Quinn Barabash, aka Captain Quinn; Skeena Kite by Graham Genge and Northwest Kayak by Louis Bissonnette.

In Feature Films were, Stand, B4 Apres / Nocholas Teichrob Photography; and Fortune Wild, Ben Gulliver / Sitka.

In Wild People Photos were Brandon Broderick with A self-portrait at the base of Exstew Falls, Graham Genge with Kick Flip and Lida MacLellan with What it’s all about.

Wild Places Photos winners were Christopher Gee with Kuldo Log, Ezra Brousseau with Wesach Falls and Derek Flynn with Roche Trails.

And Wild Things Photos saw first and second places going to Brandon Broderick with Coyote and Thayer’s Gull and third to Johannes Edinger by Sara Jane Railton with Chinook Salmon. Prizes from sponsors will be awarded at the SkeenaWild holiday party Dec. 19 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Planning ahead for its fifth annual SWFF, SkeenaWild says it will take the tour to more rural, remote and First Nations communities as well as regional schools and it will be even bigger and bolder.
