Okanagan residents are needed to help make a movie a success.

Sepia Films is reaching out to the region for extras and specific items needed for Anthem, which will be shot in Kelowna starting March 23.

Needed are vintage ’90s (or older) cars and any 1990s clothes or gadgets

Sepia is also seeking those interested in volunteering as group cast. They will have the opportunity to book a walk-on role in the movie, work closely with the film’s stars and win daily prizes.

“We encourage everyone to apply, no experience is necessary,” said Jon Summerland, with the Okanagan Film Commission.

To submit for casting, send contact information, a simple headshot, your age and availability between March 23 and April 13 to

To submit a vehicle or any other ’90s goods, send your contact info, a photo of the item, whether the item is being donated or on lend and availability between March 23 and April 13 to

Anthem is a coming of age story that stars Cameron Monaghan (Shameless), and Disney star Peyton List.

“Sepia Films has brought seven films to the Okanagan, each one hiring more locals and training new crew,” said Summerland.

“Sepia has helped the region to become a production hub and has helped build its local infrastructure.”
