The third annual ReelPeachFest film festival concluded Sunday at the 70th annual Penticton Peach Festival with the screening of the judge’s choice and fan favorite films for Okanagan Experiences or Okanagan Liquid Libations.
“We had room for 30 submissions and this year we received more creative stories with less promotional or commercial content; which is what we are trying to move towards,” said organizer Andrew Jakubeit. “The films made people laugh, smile and exposed them to experiences that they might never know existed.”
Producers submitted one to three minute short films with first prize walking away with a getaway to the Penticton Lakeside Resort plus $1,000, 2nd prize $500, 3rd prize and fan favorite $250.
