The Kamloops Film Festival makes it a priority to share the work of filmmakers, especially local filmmakers, as much as possible. If you would like to submit your film to the Kamloops Film Festival, we encourage you to do so, but below are some guidelines you must meet and some information we will need.

Guidelines:

  • You must submit your film before January 5 of the given festival year
    • We will let you know by January 15 whether your film has been accepted
  • Please have all permissions for copyright secured before you submit
  • The film must be no older than the previous year
  • The film must not be out on video or available for download or streaming online, and it must not have been screened publicly in Kamloops
