The 48 is a recurring 48-hour film festival open to any filmmaker located within the Okanagan. The premise is simple, OSIF provides filmmakers with a Genre, Prop, and Line of Dialogue, then filmmakers have 48 hours (often Friday-Sunday) to complete their 1 to 3-minute film.
The first festival ran in May 2020.
Script 2 Screen is a screenwriting and pitch contest. Applicants must submit their short script along with a detailed submission list based around their project. They then have to pitch their project to a panel of judges. The judges will decide what project will win a prize package to help complete their short film. Furthermore, their film will be played on the big screen at an OSIF Festival.
