Northwest B.C.film festival seeks contributions

This is the fifth year for the festival organized by SkeenaWild

SkeenaWild is proud to announce that the 5th Annual SkeenaWild Film Festival (SWFF) is officially open for submissions from May 1st to September 15th, 2014.

This year marks a special milestone for the SkeenaWild Film Festival as we celebrate our 5th Year running! With over 500+ films and photos submitted over the past four years,

SWFF has become the largest home-grown film and photo festival of Northwestern BC and it just keeps getting better. In addition to our regular line-up of categories, this year features new categories for the ‘Best SmartPhone Pic or Video’, as well as, the sure to be hilarious ‘Funniest Skeena Story’.

Our region holds some of the most dramatic landscapes and compelling subjects.

This lends inspiration for all kinds of creative works. Feature and short-length films can be of any genre including documentary, action/adventure, comedy, animation, music video, etc. and SkeenaWild offers support to those who are interested in developing a submission for the festival from the use of our camera equipment to providing assistance during the editing process.

In addition to SWFF, SkeenaWild is also facilitating a five day Film Camp for youth ages 13-18 this summer.

Participants of the SkeenaWild Film Camp can expect to be immersed in all aspects of the filmmaking process including writing, directing, filming and editing while being led and mentored by local media and video professionals.

Dates of the Film Camp will be announced shortly with early-bird registration open and encouraged to ensure a space.

Film and photography is a field of considerable interest and SkeenaWild has consistently been at the forefront by producing compelling video that focuses on the conservation and protection of Wild Salmon and our ties to this resource, as well as, the facilitation of community engagement initiatives such as SWFF and the SkeenaWild Film Camp.

The result is a culmination of stories and moments that depict genuine care, connection, concern and passion for the Northwest region.

SkeenaWild Conservation Trust is a regionally based organization dedicated to the long-term health and resilience of the wild salmon ecosystem, while optimizing economic returns to First Nations and local communities. Its head office is in Terrace, B.C.
