The Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking (OSIF) is a registered non-profit film community based in the Okanagan Valley since 2003. Members range from film industry professionals, to students, to those simply wanting to learn more about the filmmaking process.


Our Mission

OSIF is committed to education, opportunity, community service and fiscal responsibility. We provide our membership with networking opportunities, workshops, on-set experience, film events/screenings, production advice and the equipment necessary to enable our members’ ideas to come to life!

We want to offer support and connections for Kelowna’s emerging Film Industry. We plan on developing two new specific programs to achieve this goal: (i) Regular Ongoing Skills/Capacity Building Workshops (ii) Formal Mentorship Program
