Yorkton is site of film premiere in Saskatchewan
Canadian screen icon to attend event

The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, Sunrise Health Region, and the Yorkton Short Film and
Video Festival are teaming up to present the Saskatchewan premiere of a feature film production
May 23rd in Yorkton. Released by Capri Films, Away From Her marks the directorial debut of
Canadian actor Sarah Polley. Produced by Atom Egoyan and Doug Mankoff, the film is a heartfelt
look at Alzeheimer’s disease and how it can affect relationships. The film stars a stellar cast
including Julie Christie, Olympia Dukakis, and Canadian screen legend Gordon Pinsent. Pinsent
is scheduled to attend the premiere event in Yorkton.

“We couldn’t be happier to have Mr. Pinsent on hand for this important event that brings
attention to such a progressive, degenerative disease affecting families throughout our
communities,” says Louise Belanger, Community Health Educator, for Sunrise. “Sunrise would
like to thank the Yorkton Film Festival for allowing us the opportunity to team-up with them for
such a worthy cause.”

The film premiere runs May 23rd, 2007 at 6:30 p.m. at the Tower Theatre in Yorkton. At the
conclusion of the film, a question and answer session with Gordon Pinsent is scheduled, followed
by a wine and cheese reception. Tickets for the event are available from the Yorkton Film
Festival, and the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan for $ 25. After expenses, all proceeds from
the event go to the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan for Alzheimer-related programs
throughout the Health Region.

“This event acts as a nice prelude to the 60th anniversary celebrations of the Yorkton Short Film
and Video Festival,” says Festival Executive Director, Fay Kowal. “The Festival has developed a
tradition of recognizing excellent films and providing great learning opportunities. We welcome
the chance to co-host such an important premiere.”
The Yorkton Short Film and Video Festival is the longest running film festival in North America.
The Festival runs May 24 – 27, 2007 in Yorkton.
