KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops Independent Short Short Film Festival is now accepting submissions for their annual celebration of local filmmakers.

The Kamloops Film Society invites all local filmmakers to submit a less than five minute film to the Kamloops Independent Short Short (KISS) Film Festival, for a chance to win prizes awarded by several community groups including the Kamloops Arts Council, Joy Factory Films and the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission.

The film festival has been celebrating local filmmakers in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District for several years. There are cash prizes for first, second and third place. As well as a youth prize and an audience favourite, according to the festival's official website.

Films must be submitted on a DVD or USB format and can be dropped at MovieMart located downtown. 

Last year's first place winner was Josef Perszon for the film Holy Dungarees.

For more information on rules and regulations go here. The deadline to submit films is Feb. 28.
