2019 Festival Film Reel


Entries from the the 4th annual Student Okanagan Film Festival were originally screened on April 29th, 2019 at the Mary Irwin Theatre. As the 2020 festival was postponed, we are sharing this film reel for all to enjoy.

“It’s rare for students to get an opportunity to watch their movie in a full house, on a huge screen. They’re producing their work on computer monitors, so a movie screening—with their peers—is an awesome opportunity. Last year’s program was amazing. The quality of film is only getting better every year.”
