2021 Gotta Minute Film Festival + Awards Celebration

September 17, 2021, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM



The 2021 Gotta Minute Film Festival Awards Celebration is this Friday, September 17th. This event will be in compliance with the new mandates implemented by the Alberta Government that were announced yesterday evening. We have previously mentioned that we recommend you are double vaccinated, wear a mask, and practice physical distancing if you wish to attend this event. 

It’s important to us that we are doing all we can to preserve the health and well-being of our event guests, artists, employees and volunteers, so we have updated our safety protocols for the event. We are now REQUIRING attendees to be double vaccinated, wear a mask unless seated, and maintain 2 metres of physical distancing between households at the event. There are tables at Root 107 and food trucks present, so please maintain one household per table (or two households if they are your cohort), and prioritize seating for those with mobility challenges or disabilities. Note: these restrictions do not apply to those under 12 years old, though we do recommend children wear a mask and stay with their household.

If you do not feel comfortable attending, please do keep an eye on our Instagram page for we will be announcing the winners there as they happen live. Then, feel free to check out the winning films online! Winning films will have their own program and be played on PATTISON screens for the week following the awards celebration. 

If you are a filmmaker who wins an award and isn’t in attendance, we will contact you on the following Monday to arrange the delivery of your prize.
