YFS and KIAC celebrate National Canadian Film Day: Wednesday April 22!

We're making four recent Yukon docs free to watch for 48 hours.  Made possible with the generous support of kobayashi + zedda!

Camera Trap is an intimate portrait about aspiring wilderness photographer Peter Mather and the lengths he will go to capture the one perfect shot to tell the story of the Porcupine Caribou herd and the greatest land migration on earth. The Porcupine Caribou Herd migrate each year through Alaska and Yukon to get to their incredibly sensitive calving grounds which are threatened by oil and gas development. Peter Mather is on a mission to show the world why this place is worth protecting, and he's willing go to extraordinary lengths to do so. Directed by Whitehorse-based filmmaker, Marty O'Brien. Produced by Shot in the Dark Productions.

Starting Wednesday, April 22 at midnight we're taking down the paywall for 48 hours for these four films in the Available Light On Demand collection:

Memory Trap by Allan Code, Camera Trap by Marty O’Brien, All It Gives by Talia Woodland and Shift by Kelly Milner
