Organizers are looking for submissions from young filmmakers, or filmmakers who have worked with youth, who would like to show off their work on the big screen. The Bowen Island Community School Association-sponsored festival has three criteria:

  • Film must be under 30 min.
  • Film must be suitable for family viewing (general audience).
  • Film must be made by a Bowen Island resident or have significant input from a Bowener and have included youth in the production.

Films can be of any genre and the deadline to submit a finished project is Feb. 7.

Filmmakers can send Vimeo or YouTube links to Stanka Oben at for consideration. Submitting is free. 

And for lovebirds and movie lovers alike, what’s a better way to spend the first Valentine’s Day of the decade than at the movies? The film fest will be at BICS Feb. 14 starting at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m.) and admission is by donation. There will be a concession.
