The Okanagan International Film Festival


Tired of the Hollywood sequels? Got a hankering for some original and well-made entertainment? Something with a unique voice? This year’s Okanagan International Film Festival is bigger and better than ever and is set to take centre stage.


Needless to say it has been quite the year since the 2009 festival: the winter Olympics, budgetary cuts to funding for


the arts, and the continued down-turn of the global economy. I honestly thought we would have fewer entries during these troubled times. I was wrong. The number of entries under consideration has tripled, and we have the pleasure of showing the top third of these films at this year’s festival.


The 2010 festival will include many award-winning films alongside new films from the independent movie scene. Many of the films featured were nominated in the recent Leo Awards in Vancouver, and we even have an Oscar-nominated short film from Australia (Miracle Fish) in the mix. The number and quality of Okanagan submissions is also nothing short of remarkable.


We have key industry players coming in from Vancouver and Hollywood, and some fantastic musicians who are going to perform in and around the festival period. Once more we have the Q & A panel discussions on some of the issues raised in this year’s documentary film submissions, and issues concerning the film industry itself.


Thanks go out to our supporters who helped in preparation for this awesome event. Come and check out the Okanagan International Film Festival and celebrate independent film in the Central Okanagan!
