The Friends of Film Society of Powell River produces the Powell River Film Festival, an annual event each February dedicated to showcasing the finest and most current releases from Powell River, Canada, and the World.

Principal activities include programming films for schools and the general public, and presenting a camp and contest for youth aged 15-24.

The Powell River Film Festival,  with an 18 year history, has deep connections to the film community of British Columbia. Referred to as Hollywood North, Vancouver is the third largest film and television production centre in North America. Direct spending on film and television in British Columbia in 2014 was in excess of $2 billion.

With more than 3,000 seats filled last year, the Powell River Film Festival provides an excellent opportunity to reach the local film-making community, industry professionals, and an audience with an interest in culture and community.

One of last year’s highlights was the local feature production, Kayak to Klemtu, by Zoe Leigh Hopkins and Michael Sparaga. After her uncle’s death, a 14-year-old girl must speak on his behalf against a proposed pipeline that would bring oil tanker traffic to the waters around her hometown in British Columbia.

Visit the Powell River Film Festival website for more information, including film trailers (coming soon!)
