Filmmaker Supported by Community

Kelowna, British Columbia – On January 22, 2016 local indie film maker Shri Ananda won the ‘Script 2 Screen’ contest hosted by the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmaking. Shri’s script ‘Out of the Darkness’ will be coming to life on the BIG screen thanks to the studio time donated by The Film Factory, visual effects work done by Allegiance Studios, and access to all the filmmaking gear courtesy of OSIF.

Sixty-eight volunteer cast and crew members joined the team and produced the short film over the month of February in order to submit it in time for IndieFest, a festival to showcase local filmmakers. The festival takes place on March 24, 2016 at the Paramount Theatre.

Low budget film projects such as this are only made possible through the generosity and support of local businesses and individuals. The community really stepped up with food donations provided by The Jitterbug Diner, Murray’s Pizza, The White Spot, and the Ekahi Yoga Center. Location donations have been made possible by the Central Okanagan Sailing Association, ARTE functional, The Energy Plex, Ekahi Yoga Center, and the Okanagan College.
