The Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking (OSIF) is hosting its 10th annual horror film festival in Kelowna.
Taking place Friday night at Habitat, the event will feature seven locally made productions and the best films from the last 10 years.
“We only play local films,” Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking president Marc Nadeau said. “We never play films that come in from outside of the area.”
Films are two to 12 minutes long.
“You know, a nice, scary little film. Good punch line, good ending.”
Most of the movies will only be shown at the film festival, according to Nadeau.
“Some of these films never see the light of day beyond the Okanagan, which is kind of funny because some of the film makers are shy,” Nadeau said. “So they only make it for a local audience.”
The lineup includes:
- Crosses by Dustin Jeffrey
- Adulthood by Brian Taylor
- Metanoia by Michael Fullerton
- SWINE by Mitch and Pam Vogrinetz
- Ring, Ring, Death Phone by Tyler Messervey
- 02/22/17 by Maddison Tebbutt
- Scarecrow by Kelly Veltri
