The Yukon Film Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing filmmakers and film lovers. Through the Available Light Film Festival and the Available Light Cinema series, we curate and exhibit contemporary, independent and alternative moving pictures of Canadian and International origin to Yukon audiences.

During the physical shut-down of theatres, we’ve teamed up with independent distributors to bring you first-run films in the comfort of your home. Enjoy some of the best recent films and support the Yukon Film Society at the same time, with a portion of your rental fee helping to fund the film society.


The Yukon Film Society humbly acknowledges that we are based on the traditional territory of the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council and the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and that we live, create and benefit within this territory. Shä̀w níthän. Kwä̀nä̀schis. Gunalchîsh.


We gratefully acknowledge the annual support of Yukon Arts Operating Fund, Lotteries Yukon and Canada Council for the Arts.

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.


A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them.
