Kamloops Independent Short Shorts (KISS) Film Fest

The KISS Film Fest is a celebration of the short film format and local filmmakers.

The Kamloops Film Society has been encouraging local filmmakers through the KISS Festival for a number of years. Talented local directors and the audience are annually treated to the excitement of seeing the 5 minute long (or shorter) films on the big screen at the Paramount Theatre (503 Victoria Street) as part of the Kamloops Film Festival held in March. Cash prizes for winners are awarded by the KISS Committee, the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission, and the Kamloops Arts Council.

This event is our way of celebrating the hard work and passion of our regional talent. Come support these films and filmmakers from our community by attending the FREE screenings. Plus, vote for the Audience Awards!!


KISS 2023 will return on Sunday, March 5 at 1pm at the Paramount Theatre as part of the 2023 Kamloops Film Festival. KISS is free to attend.

Film submissions for KISS are due on February 20, 2023. A submission form and a submission fee must be included. More information available on the form.
