Every year, The Moonrise Film Festival finds today’s great and emerging filmmakers, and showcases their work in the historic Sunset Theatre in Wells, BC. We pride ourselves on screening freshly independent animation, documentary, experimental, and fiction films from across Canada and around the world. Since our inception, we've screened over 200 short and feature films, and had over 40 filmmakers attend our festival, giving audiences first-hand interaction with them in intimate Q&A sessions!
