About OSIF


OSIF has been around as a club of enthusiastic filmmakers since the early 1990's.  In 2003 OSIF officially incorporated into a non-profit society serving filmmakers within the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia.  Our mandate has always been to support and encourage our members filmmaking endeavours through the production and presentation of independent films.  We offer our members support through workshops, networking, equipment access, project screenings, as well as grant & mentorship opportunities.
