KFS helping to launch new film festival on diversity and mental health issues

The Kootenay Film Society is pleased  to announce its partnership with Kootenay Gambling Support in launching the "Unbound" film festival in Creston this fall.




Aimed at raising awareness of mental health, diversity and addictions issues, the one-day event at a location TBA will feature films made  by participants in workshops the KFS is hosting this spring and summer.

Festival spokesperson Vanessa Lozecznik says the workshops are free and open to anyone, but are aimed particularly at those in the mental health community who have stories to tell about their work or experiences, or who simply wanat to help drive awareness of these issues.


Held one per month starting in April, the one-day workshops will step participants through the basic stages of even a short film or animation production, including scripting, sound recording, directing, animation, cinematography and film editing.
