Suzanne Crocker ALFF Audience Choice Award - Best Canadian Documentary 2015

During the end of 2014 and into the Spring of 2015 YFS Production member Suzanne Crocker's film All the Time in the World journeyed through Western Canada and California. The film was one of the 15 films selected for the Telefilm Canada Micro-Budget Production Program, a process Crocker began at the Yukon Film and Sound Commission and YFS' Media Industry Forum a few years back.

Crocker and her film returned home to the Yukon to the Available Light Film Festival in February 2015 and to the Dawson City International Short Film Festival in April 2015. Screening at most Western Canadian Film Festivals and the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City, CA audiences were most taken with Suzanne and her family's Northern humility; searching for a new perspective on the world that sometimes consumes the time Suzanne and her family have together they headed out into the bush to live for 9 months. After receiving multiple accolades and audience choice awards Crocker was anxious but nervous to return home to the Yukon with her film. The Yukon welcomed her home with voting her film the ALFF 2015 Audience Choice Award for Best Canadian Documentary and a special screening of All the Time in the World in her home town Dawson City at their International Short Film Festival. Among these two honours the film has also won the following awards:
