The winners in the fourth annual ReelPeachFest have been announced. 

The short film festival featured films from one to three minutes long, submitted to one of two possible categories, Okanagan Experience and Liquid Libations. Thirty-six total films were entered and showed prior to musical headliners each night.

"The films made people laugh, smile, and exposed them to local experiences that they might never have known existed," said organizer Andrew Jakubeit.

In the Okanagan Experience category, the Fan Favourite award went to "Okanagan 101," produced by Nikki Love. It plays up Okanagan stereotypes while showcasing a genuine love of the area. 

First place went to "iPhone Narcissist," produced by Kate Twa and Ronan Reinart, which features a woman making her away around Penticton and area landmarks while glued to her phone, snapping selfies, poking fun at the Instagram lifestyle. 

Second and third place went to "Kettle Valley Railway Train Robbery" by William Joshua Rowbottom, and "Drums call to Dance" by Li Li. 

First place and Fan Favourite in the Liquid Libations category was "Meet Tony Holler," produced by Daphne Scromeda. It tells the story of Poplar Grove Winery and the wine they produce through personal recollections from owner Tony Holler. 

Second and third were "Cannery Going with the Flow" by James Manke and Kim Lawton and "The View" by Jennifer Molgat.

First first prize walked away with a getaway to the Penticton Lakeside Resort plus $1000, second prize received $500, third prize received $250 and fan favourites received a gift basket from Castanet valued at $300.
