KELOWNA - A local filmmaker wrapped a month-long movie project in Kelowna today.

Neon Cinema Films finished filming their independent first feature-film The Color Rose today, May 31, after working in the Okanagan for four weeks, according to a Neon Cinema Films media release.

The film was shot at several famous Kelowna locations, including the Benvoulin Church, Venture Academy, Father Pandosy Mission and BNA Brewery.

Directed by Courtney Paige, who grew up in Kelowna, The Color Rose is a thriller centred on seven high school girls who start a cult and each embody one of the seven deadly sins. Many of the actors are local to the Okanagan.

“It has been a pleasure working with the cast and crew here in Kelowna over the past four weeks," Paige said in the release. "We have enjoyed the beautiful weather, stunning landscapes and hospitality of all those we have encountered."
