The 25th Kamloops Film Festival

The Kamloops Film Festival returns for our 25th Anniversary! We’re back with 25+ fabulous films to entertain every possible audience and 25+ delightful festivities for the whole family, including everyone’s favourites –from red carpet shenanigans to closing party merrymaking– and exciting, new fare!

We’ve missed you, Kamloops. We’ve also learned a lot about hosting safe events, pivoting quickly and gracefully, and the importance of connecting through the shared experience of watching movies together. Community, in COVID, is everything.

So, join the community that is the 2022 Kamloops Film Festival from March 3rd to 12th at the Paramount Theatre! Kamloops Film Fest returnees will be excited to see the return of some of their beloved festivities: families can enjoy bringing their kiddos to a party and film for Family Day; 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!
