The Yorkton Film Festival (YFF) is an annual film festival held in late May in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

Canada’s first film festival, the YFF bills itself as the longest running film festival in North America. It was established in 1947 under the guidance of the Yorkton Film Council, with the first festival held in 1950. Initially known as the International Film Festival, it was run by the Yorkton Film Council until that body disbanded in 1971. Since then, the Yorkton International Film Festival Society has run the event, which has gone through several changes of name and mission.
