Available Light On-Demand (ALD) is a strategic initiative intended to digitally distribute Yukon and northern Canadian films and media art. This service gives films a new online home among other works on an on-demand platform available to audiences around the world. Available Light On-Demand is a space for building a filmmaker’s audience and demographics through analytics and exhibition opportunities and is designed to be a one-stop shop for diverse, artist-driven Yukon and northern content.
Available Light On-Demand is a joint initiative between the Yukon Film Society and the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture and supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and Government of Yukon.
The information provided is private and will not be shared with anyone outside of the Available Light On-Demand team, including curatorial committee members. Available Light On-Demand reserves the right to keep the submission materials for subsequent editions of the initiative for future adjudication committees.
The filmmaker will be notified by the Distribution Coordinator if the future committee wishes to consider their film in subsequent years/selection windows.
Submission guidelines for ALD are subject to change. Yukon Film Society reserves the right to rule on all issues not expressly covered in these guidelines.
Works selected for distribution by ALD will be paid a licensing fee of $530 (based on IMAA recommended rates) as well as 75% of the net rental/purchase revenue of their film once the licensing fee has been recouped.
For the purposes of eligibility, ALD uses the following definitions:
