the sEVENth annual
Saskatchewan Independent Film Awards
Saturday, November 28th, 2020
The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative is very pleased to present the 7th Annual Saskatchewan Independent Film Awards (SIFA). The 2020 SIFA’s will be held Saturday, November 28th online. The evening will begin with a screening of the nominated films and conclude with a hosted award ceremony.
The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative is dedicated to the production and exhibition of independent, visionary, Saskatchewan-made film and video art. The Saskatchewan Independent Film Awards (SIFA) is an annual event to support, showcase and celebrate Saskatchewan’s dynamic filmmaking community.
The province of Saskatchewan has a rich history in the production of independent film and video production, and the SIFA is an important event to further demonstrate to not only the filmmaking community, but to the entire province of Saskatchewan, of our ‘home-grown’ artistic talents and story telling abilities.
Saskatchewan is a growing province - growing in population diversity and cultural opportunity. We have always had a unique sense of provincial pride and perspective of ourselves and of the world around us. It is important we take every possible advantage in promoting our own artistic and creative talents. By so doing, this will not only reinforce our own cultural identity - in all its diversity and vibrancy, but also, it will foster new and ongoing opportunities of creativity, growth and economic success.
The annual presentation of SIFA is intended to support these objectives. It will bring Saskatchewan’s artistic and business communities together in an attempt to build a new and exciting future in Saskatchewan. The Filmpool believes it is imperative that we celebrate and showcase our own filmmakers – in order to help create new ideas, new heroes and new opportunities.
