Okanagan Indie Fest: International Film Festival

The Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking (OSIF) is happy to bring back Indie Fest for a third consecutive year!  This year we're going bigger and better!  Taking place in the sunny paradise of Kelowna, The Okanagan Indie Fest is an international film festival dedicated to celebrating the artists participating while promoting the art of independent storytelling itself.

Our motto is: "Celebrating storytelling however a story is told."
