The 27th Annual Kamloops Film Festival

The Kamloops Film Festival returns for our its 27th year! We’re back with 20+ fabulous feature films and 20+ delightful events with something for everyone to enjoy – from discussions fueled by tasty beverages to filmmaker Q&As, and everything in-between, come connect with amazing films from around the world!

So, join the film loving community at the 2023 Kamloops Film Festival from March 2nd to 11th at the Paramount Theatre! Kamloops Film Fest returnees will be excited to see some of their beloved festivities: families can enjoy bringing their kiddos to a party and family flick; DarkFest fans will not be disappointed with this year’s frightening fare in collaboration with Drunk in a Graveyard; sustainability will be a key theme with socially and environmentally progressive films and an event with BCLC; and attendees can look forward to Films for a Cause, Featured Non-Profits, and stimulating Q&As; as well as the ever-popular Kamloops Independent Short Shorts (KISS) Film Fest!
