Envisioning The South Okanagan in Film
The Reel Peach Film Festival was a new addition in 2015 to the Penticton Peach Festival line-up. The various entries for the film festival will be aired each night during the Penticton Peach Festival after 9:00 pm, before the main act plays. The videos will air beside the Peter Bros. main stage on the big screen. Typically each night of Peach Fest before the main act plays, while the stage is set up, there is space to fill as it is too dark and crowded for other entertainment. The Reel Peach Fest offers an opportunity to entertain the large crowds and showcase the Okanagan with authentic experiences and different perspectives. The Reel Peach Fest is an opportunity to engage the 5,000+ people in Okanagan Lake Park with films about Okanagan experiences or libations. There will also be social media exposure as the film festival will have a fan choice award. It is a beautiful setting along Okanagan Lake under the stars were you will view potential new activities or liquidities, showcased on film, that will inspire you to try and will ignite your community pride.
