Okanagan IndieFest 2018 – Featuring 28 Films!
by David Woodford
Gonzo Okanagan is proud to support the third annual IndieFest, a short film, short doc and music video festival being presented at the Kelowna Community Theatre this Saturday July 14th .
Organized by the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking (OSIF), featuring 28 films total, playing over two screening blocks throughout the day, one afternoon, and a filmmaker’s gala and awards ceremony in the evening.
OSIF President Marc Nadeau said, “This is the first year that we’ve opened our festival up to international film submissions as well as locals. There are some incredible films at this year’s event including a short film starring Tommy Wiseau from “The Room” and “The Disaster Artist” fame as well as another with a musical score from famed composer Danny Elfman. We had amazing community support last year and we hope to see that continued support again this year.”
IndieFest is an all ages event, though some films may contain violence, coarse language and/or sexually suggestive scenes.
Prizes will be handed out at the Gala event for the Best Film, Best Local Film, Best Doc, Best Music Video, a People’s Choice Award and more.
