The Kelowna Film Society is pleased to offer scholarships or bursaries each year in support of students in film programs. Similar support may also be available for local film projects.

Thanks to the steady audience attendance, the Society is able to aid budding film students and local filmmakers with substantial scholarships and grants. At the committee’s discretion, applicants may be awarded use of the KFS camera in addition to, or in lieu of, financial assistance. For 2014, a total of $7250 was awarded by the Kelowna Film Society to four film students: Ryan Ermacora (SFU), Patrick Parry and Braydon Rouck (Capilano University), and Malibu Taetz (UBCO) and to two film makers: Kiano Zamani and Chelsea McEvoy for film projects. Please see our 2014 Scholarship and Bursary Awards page for details about these talented individuals.
