The Kamloops Film Festival (KFF) is back for its 19th year March 5 to 14, 2015 at the Paramount Theatre!
The KFF will feature crowd pleasing Canadian comedies that were the backbone of last year’s Fest (Big News from Grand Rock, Mountain Men, When the Ocean Met the Sky), family fare (Shana: The Wolf’s Music), powerful international award winners (Gett: The Trial Of Viviane Amsalem, Leviathan, Winter Sleep), daring female driven narratives (Still Alice, Two Days, One Night), popular dramas (Mommy, Maps to the Stars, Rosewater), intriguing documentaries (The Backward Class, Citizenfour), and the return of a mini DarkFest on Friday the 13th at 9pm with the hilarious PG rated vampire mockumentary from the comically genius minds behind Flight of the Concords, Eagle vs Shark, and Boy (KFF 2013).

INSPIRING DRAMA – After suffering under German occupation in WWII, the Netherlands has been liberated by Canadian forces. But liberation doesn’t always seem like freedom.
