The organizers of this year’s Amnesty International Film Festival would like to extend our appreciation to the support we received from the community in holding this event. The films were well received with a capacity audience for several of the features.
Special thanks to the Yukon Teachers’ Association for their generous support. Our appreciation goes out to the teachers that invited our films and discussions into their classrooms. Thanks also to the Llama Project for support.
Our fabulous posters and programs were the work of Reactive Designs. Thanks to: the Yukon News for running ads for us in their paper; to Andrew Connors and the Yukon Film Society for technical support and assistance; to PSAC for the use of their sound system; Paul Mantle for his generous hospitality; and to Baked Cafe for the coffee at the reception.
Thanks to the Yukon Human Rights Commission, Michael Dougherty and Larry Bagnell and the Friends of Burma for their involvement and solidarity in the promotion of human rights here and abroad.
Thanks to the volunteers: Emily Abrogio, Rachel Guay , Dan Shorty and especially Connie and Lawrence Dublenko; and to the friendly staff at the MacBride Museum for their fine service.
Look for our festival again next year at the end of November.
