The Yorkton Film Festival recently announced the nominees for the Ruth Shaw Best of Saskatchewan Award of Excellence as part of the 2012 Golden Sheaf Awards, which included the Canadian Short Screenplay Competition’s ‘Rusted Pyre’ written by Daniel Audet and directed by Laurence Cohen.
Yorkton, SK— The Canadian Short Screenplay Competition’s 2008 3rd place winning script ‘Rusted Pyre’ written by Daniel Audet and directed by Laurence Cohen, has been nominated in the category of Best of Saskatchewan as part of this year’s Golden Sheaf Awards.
The Canadian Short Screenplay Competition was nominated in the same category last year for their short film ‘Minus Lara’, written by Surita Parmar and directed by Rob King.
This is the second Golden Sheaf nomination for Producer David Cormican.
“It’s a remarkable honour to be recognized amongst my peers like this—not to mention two years running”, says Cormican of the nominations. “YFF is a fantastic venue and their long-standing support of the industry makes it a top destination for filmmakers every May”.
‘Rusted Pyre’ stars Brooke Palsson (HBO’s ‘Less Than Kind’) and Samantha Somer Wilson (‘Nurse.Fighter.Boy.’) and will screen at the 2012 Yorkton Film Festival.
