FILMNORTH is the first ever Northern BC Film Festival.
Our festival seeks to highlight content created in or about Northern BC as well filmmakers/directors from the Northern BC region. We are looking for those interested in getting their films out to audiences. As a region often used by Hollywood North, we believe Northern BC is home to a variety of talents and we wish to highlight those artists.
The Pleasant Valley Plaza, the venue which will host this event, is an independent single screen theatre that resides in an indoor entertainment complex. While it also hosts a bowling alley, mini golf, and restaurant , The Plaza runs a licensed lounge which is perfect for hosting welcoming parties and panels.
The festival FILMNORTH will run all Saturday, July 27th with a special dinner/evening event lined up for those filmmakers who participated.
Currently no prizes or awards will be given out.
Our hope is to grow this event in the next years and be able to award large financial prizes to those who win.
We require our films to be submitted either through DCP, DVD, or media file like MP4 or AVI one week before the event, July 27th.
We accept any particular type of film, as well as length.
We only ask that the film either centre on Northern BC or is created by someone who has lived/lives in Northern BC
