IN REGARDS TO COVID-19: The Yukon Film Society takes the health and wellbeing of our community seriously. ALFF is closely following recommendations from the Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health (YCMOH). In this stage of planning, we anticipate that our festival will be a mixture of in-person, reduced-capacity events and online events. This is subject to change as new recommendations for events and gatherings are made by the YCMOH.
