A local not for profit is looking to support art students in a big way.

The Okanagan Screen Arts Society (OSA) is offering two bursaries for the 2017/18 school term. Applications may be obtained at the Vernon Towne Cinema box office, or online at okanaganscreenarts@gmail.com Applications must be received by Aug. 23.

“We really hope to be able to help a couple of students for the coming year,” said Susan Hodgson, OSA secretary.

The OSA was founded in 2016. A mandate of the society is to provide assistance to students in the arts in their quest for higher learning at a recognized post secondary institution.

OSA brings new Canadian, European, and American independent films to the community, focusing on independent films that are produced and marketed outside of the Hollywood studio system. The society also screens classic films, featuring iconic directors and actors.

Annual memberships are available at the Vernon Towne Cinema on the Monday evenings when OSA screens their films. Full time students and seniors $5; full membership $10, and corporate (up to five members) $150. The society boasts nearly 400 members.
