Film deadline extended

Aspiring and professional filmmakers still have time to get films submitted for Inquisitive Clips Film Competition

Aspiring and professional filmmakers still have time to get their films submitted for the third annual Inquisitive Clips Film Competition.

Co-sponsored by the City of Vernon and the Regional District of the North Okanagan, the film competition deadline has been extended to this Friday.

Filmmakers of all ages are encouraged to enter a short film (five minutes or less), telling a story about sustainability in your backyard.

“Show the City of Vernon and RDNO what sustainable activities you’re currently working on, or what you want to see in the future,” said Jessica Rayner, the city’s s environmental planning assistant.

“Efficient building designs, increased waste reduction, alternative modes of transportation, food production – your imagination is the only limit.”

First place prize is an Apple iPad.

The top film entries will be screened and contest winners will be announced at the Environment Week awards night June 3 at Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre.

“Film submissions may also be showcased at future community events throughout the North Okanagan,” said Karmen Morgan, RDNO waste reduction co-ordinator.
