Oatway Productions announces that the very popular Golden Film Festival (GFF) is back and will be taking place once again at the Mount 7 Recreation Complex in Golden, B.C. on March 26, 2017. GFF, is ran entirely by volunteers from through out the community and all the prizes are donated by local businesses.
We have opened our doors to all filmmakers who are creating short (under 15 minutes) films of any genre shot within the BC Interior. Our event has screened films including adventure, documentary, drama, comedy and music videos. Our filmmakers range from the first timer to the seasoned professional. All films will be judged prior to the event but there will be a peoples choice award as well picked by the audience. The film submission deadline is March 17th – so get your camera rolling!
For those unfamiliar with the event, we expect to have up to 500 people attend the festival (200 minimum) with around 30 film submissions and 5-6 different prize categories. Amico Meats will be providing hot food for the event and Whitetooth Brewery will be providing alcoholic beverages. The doors will open at 5 pm and the films will start playing at 6 pm. Around 7:30 pm, we will take a 45 min intermission so people can browse the product booths, get food or drinks, and socialize. We will then play the rest of the films and the prizes and door prizes will be announced and handed out, with everything wrapping up around 10 pm.
