“Dead North is designed to showcase the Northern imagination and inspire even the most amateur filmmakers to bring their ideas to the screen,” festival director Meagan Wohlberg said in a news release on Monday.

“We hope to see entries from communities across the circumpolar world that highlight the chilling beauty of the North.”

Dead North takes place February 26-28 at Yellowknife’s Capitol Theatre.
