Updated Broadcasting Regulatory Policy
"The Commission has reviewed its policy framework for Certified Independent Production Funds (CIPFs) to ensure that CIPFs contribute to the development of a robust Canadian production sector and that they have the flexibility necessary to operate in an increasingly multi-platform environment. A robust and forward-looking Canadian production sector will be better able to offer compelling high-quality content to Canadians and to global audiences."
If you haven't had a chance to see it yet, come on out to the Arts Centre on October 1st for a screening of Kelly Milner's SHIFT with live performances by the Dakhká Khwáan Dancers and DASH. It's going to be a PARTY!
Tickets are $25 and can be bought online at the Yukon Arts Centre.
