The Okanagan Film Industry’s Busy Year

To say the Okanagan’s film industry has had a busy year, would be an understatement. Did you know? We are experiencing huge growth here and its unstoppable! The Okanagan has absolutely killed it this year for films and we now have a thriving, budding animation industry. Since last writing to you, we are pleased to announce, if you didn’t hear, that one of Canada’s top animation studios, Barrel Entertainment, will be joining the ranks of our existing animation studios. Lizard Brain Animation continues to develop and line up new productions for their slate too.

Some of the film & television productions who planted themselves here for a short while included Flicka 3 and No Tell Motel. A number of productions are still scouting the area as we write this, and we’ve got a good slate lined up already for 2012.

We held an industry mixer at the Streaming Café earlier this month – we drew a record breaking crowd. It was an evening filled with drawing, showcasing work, making connections and getting up to date on all things film, digital and media here in the valley. Our digital screen-based production community is growing fast, don’t miss out on other events and announcements… make sure to hook up with us on Facebook and we look forward to speaking with you in the new year!
