  • Central Alberta Film Festival is coming up Feb. 23-25 and offers up some really interesting films, including SWEET YOYO.

    One balmy afternoon in Toronto, single mom Hannah receives the news that no mother wants to hear: her perfect daughter Jozefin (Yoyo for short) has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  Faced with a new and shocking reality, Hannah and Yoyo must navigate the difficulties of growing up with a serious condition.  


    Yoyo quickly learns the difficulty of having a childhood illness, from her new strict diet to administering daily blood sugar tests at school.  While Yoyo bravely comes to terms with her new reality, Hannah struggles with the financial and emotional burden of having a child with Type 1 Diabetes.

    Directed and co-written by director Mark Cira, SWEET YOYO is a semi-autobiographical short film that details with a mother and daughter facing the new reality of living with Type 1 Diabetes.

    You can catch SWEET YOYO as it makes its World Premiere at the Central Alberta Film Festival as part of the Drama series.

    Saturday, February 24
    5:20 PM
    Carnival Cinemas  

    Mark will be in attendance at the premiere.
