How to Fest

The 2021 Available Light Film Festival will be a hybrid of in-cinema and virtual screenings and events. This year’s festival will present 35 features, 30+ shorts, live virtual events, artist talks, Q&As, and more! Our in-cinema events will run February 5-15 and the ALFF Online will run Feb 5-22 for an extra week of on-demand movie goodness.

All films on ALFF Online will be available for viewers in Yukon and Northwest Territories. Many films will also be available across Canada - stay tuned to find out more.

For filmmakers and those interested in learning or building their career in filmmaking, there will be panel discussions, masterclasses, workshops, and our popular pitch event all available virtually from the comfort of your own home.

We highly encourage you to pick your films and get your tickets for in-cinema screenings before the festival as there are limited seats available due to gathering restrictions.

ALFF Online Experience Guide

To experience ALFF from home, all you need is the internet, a comfortable couch, and lots of snacks.

We want to make sure you have the best experience possible, so we’ll be putting together guides on everything from technical troubleshooting to just using the ALFF Online platform.
