PENTICTON - The Reel Peach Fest film festival is coming back to this year’s Penticton Peach Fest.
The second annual film festival takes place Aug. 3 to Aug. 7 at the main stage in Okanagan Lake Park.
Reel Peach Fest plays locally produced short films prior to the start of the headline act at the concerts and was popular last year.
Filmmakers are invited once again to submit one to three minute commercials or short films in one of two categories: Liquid Libations or Okanagan Experience.
First prize in each category is $1,000, with second and third place prizes also awarded in the amount of $500 and $250 respectively. There will also be a $500 prize awarded for Fan’s Choice.
Organizer and Penticton mayor Andrew Jakubeit says the festival will build on last year’s success and he hopes the “creative collective” that exists in the Okanagan will take this year’s submissions up a notch.
The festival is open to both professional and amateur filmmakers. Deadline for entry is July 31.
