In Profile: Kerrie Long from Edmonton International Film Festival



“CKUA is part of my DNA,” says Kerrie Long, Artistic Director of the Edmonton International Film Festival. The EIFF is currently presenting all of this year’s Academy Award-nominated short films via their website.

As the YouTube generation embraces movie-making, short films have become increasingly popular. The Oscars were recently handed out and one of the big winners in the animation category was a touching film entitled If Anything Happens I Love You.

On the Wednesday, April 21, 2021 episode of Thoroughfare, Kerrie joins Tony King to talk about CKUA’s support of EIFF, EIFF’s sponsorship of CKUA, the results of this year’s Oscars, and her love for CKUA.
