Victoria’s Inaugural Wild Water Festival Opens Call for Entries

March 29, 2016 

Following World Water Day on March 22, the Victoria Film Festival opened the call for entries for their latest mini-festival, the Wild Water Festival. With a focus on extreme water sports, travel and the environment, the Festival looks to highlight the role water plays in its many forms in September 2016.

“Wild Water is a film festival for those who love water and the many ways it affects our personal lives,” said Festival Director Kathy Kay.

The films will be paired with speakers and different events around the city, focusing on the topic of each film, including a photography exhibit organized by Gillian Montgomery with proceeds going to the Surfrider Foundation.

Submissions are open from March 23 to June 15 on Film Freeway. Since it’s the first year of the Festival, there will be no charge for entries but only eligible films will be considered.

The Wild Water Festival will run September 23-25 around downtown Victoria. Full website will launch August 1, 2016. To submit a film, go to the Film Freeway entry page.
