Peach film fest winners

The fifth annual Reel Peach Film festival has announced its winners. 

The event sees short films showed in Okanagan Lake Park during Peachfest prior to the each evening's musical headliners. 

“I think this year we had the best crop of submissions making it difficult for the judges to chose the top films” stated festival organizer Andrew Jakubeit. “For our fifth year we tried something different opening submissions to any genre; however, bonus points would be given to anything to do with a Peach or Okanagan experiences or Okanagan libations."

“The films that featured peaches or Okanagan experiences garnered the best responses, so moving forward it will be the theme,” he added.

  • 1st Place for $1,500 was “The Millennial” produced by The Fermentation Project (from Kelowna).
  • 2nd Place for $750 went to “Perfect Peach Pie” produced by Tyler Messervey and Noah Dorsey (from Kelowna)
  • 3rd Place for $300 went to “Dinner in the Okanagan” produced by Stirling Peters (from Vernon)
