Script 2 Screen



The Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking (OSIF) is proud to once again announce it’s latest filmmaking prize package for local filmmakers: Script 2 Screen!

What is Script 2 Screen?

Even a short film can cost the filmmaker time, money, and resources. OSIF's Script 2 Screen is an opportunity for the winning filmmaker to receive a production prize package to help produce their short film.

Participating filmmakers or filmmaking teams must submit an application from the submission form below, showing their thought-out production plan to produce their short film. 

All submissions will be reviewed by the OSIF Board of Directors and an independent group of judges, and narrowed down to the Top 5.  From there the Top 5 will pitch their project to a panel of industry professionals, who will then decide, along with the OSIF BoD who should receive the Production Package Prize mentioned above!

We are looking for scripts of any genre, EXCEPT Horror, Thriller, or Dark Drama. We will save those scripts for the HorrorFest S2S in the summer.


  • $500 Cash to cover production costs (50% upon delivery of valid receipts and 50% upon completion and approval of final video).
  • 1 day (8 hours) in the production studio and/or audio studio provided by The Film Factory -
  • Up to $1000 Post Audio Package, including: 16 hours of SoundFX Editing/Creation and or a Custom Musical Score for your film. Provided by Tyler Gillis -
  • 2 Hours of Legal Counsel Regarding Contracts and Copyrights for your Film Project. Provided by David Kemp, Esquire -
  • Free Entry Fee into IndieFest

That's over $6000 in a production package to help your film go from Script 2 Screen!
