The second annual Interplay Film Festival wrapped up this past weekend.
Festival organizer Toddske says submissions came in from all over the place this year.
“We got a lot of submissions from the U.K., quite a few from the U.S., had one from Russia, one from Brazil,” he recounted, “and wide-ranging stuff; we got documentaries all the way to horror shorts.”
Best Film this year went to Winged Pioneers by Angele Dobie, about aviation in Northern Alberta.
“Some great, great footage of old Fort McMurray,” Toddske described, “and some great information, some great history, about how integral these first pilots were to expanding this region up this far.”
But he says one of the biggest highlights has got to be the 48 hour filmmaking challenge.
“That one’s always the fun one because it gets people interactive; it gets people involved, and it’s local, too,” he said. “The whole point is that we like to see people running around our region with cameras.”
Kelton Stepanowich won in that category from eight teams who put together a movie in two days.
Toddske says they’ll post as many of the films as they can online at ymmpodcast.com.
