Whitehorse, November 22, 2023 – Available Light on Demand, the distribution service provided by Yukon Film Society and Klondike Institute of Art & Culture, is set to release four new works as part of its fourth-year slate.
The first films released this season include:
● Time Together: a comedic animated short from Pauline Gallinat;
● Hiking: a short, macabre thriller from Florian Bosc;
● Underdog: an inspired short documentary following Yukon musher Yuka Honda from
Naomi Mark and Vivian Belik; and
● The Circumpolar Digital Concert Series: a three-part exploration of northern music from
New North Collective.
“These new films exemplify the unique spectrum Available Light on Demand has to offer, from experimental shorts, dramatic thrillers, to award-winning documentaries,” says Andrew Connors, Artistic Director. “We invite filmmakers to continue to submit their works for consideration to be selected for this streaming service.”
This year, Available Light on Demand is bringing 14 new titles to the service, along with plans for profiles and retrospective documentaries on featured filmmakers and communities and more. As a distributor, YFS is starting a new initiative to championing new release works by Yukon artists at film festivals outside of the territory by submitting them with Yukon Film Society’s resources and connections.
Since 2019, Available Light on Demand has been Yukon’s curated selection of independent film and media works, representing over fifty titles and dozens of filmmakers from across Yukon and NWT.
