Kamloops Film Society invites Short Shorts entries from area independent film makers

6th Annual Kamloops Independent Short Shorts (KISS) Film Festival, 2013

The Kamloops Film Society (KFS) is pleased to announce its upcoming 6th Annual Kamloops Independent Short Shorts (KISS) Film Festival, 2013. As part of its mission to support and encourage local filmmaking, the KFS stages an annual KISS competition, which is open to film entries from all independent filmmakers living in Kamloops and the surrounding region of Interior BC.

The “short shorts” in the KISS name refers to the maximum length of the films—5 minutes or less. The KISS competition guidelines advise that all entries must be showable to all audiences, since children will be in attendance at the competition screening, which is a free event open to the public. Submitting entries to the KISS competition deadline is May 21, and the screening of the films and awarding of prizes will be on May 31, at 7 p.m. in the Clock Tower Theatre at Thompson Rivers University.

All participants are entered into Thompson-Nicola Regional District Participation Draw for $150.

Cash prizes will be awarded for the competition winners.

•  1st prize   $500

•  2nd prize   $250

• 3rd prize   $100

• Youth Prize (18 years and under)  $100

• Audience Favourite  $100 MovieMart gift card

• Thompson-Nicola region-based Best Film $150

Filmmakers can drop off their entry (in DVD format or QuickTime file on DVD) at MovieMart (444 St Paul Street) in downtown Kamloops on or before May 21, 2013. All entries must include an application form (available at MovieMart or online at http://www.kissfest.ca/) and a $10 entry fee.

The KFS wishes all the filmmakers who enter the KISS competition the best of luck, and looks forward to seeing all of their creative expressions! In addition, as always, the KFS thanks the many volunteers, film-lovers, and sponsors who make the annual KISS Film Festival possible.
