TOTA Devour! Short Film Contest

As if having the opportunity to enjoy the Devour! Osoyoos festivities were not enough, now you have the chance to actually participate!

Devour! The Food Film Festival is a showcase of the incredible bounty and unique culture of the South Okanagan. This year’s event is fast approaching, the curtain rises on June 15th!

At Watermark, we’re getting ready to host a weekend of incredible food, drinks, and movies that will make anyone’s mouth water!

Participating chefs from across the province (and beyond!), talented wine and cider makers from the Similkameen Independent Winegrower’s collective, and food-focused filmmakers from around the globe will come together for this highly-anticipated weekend.

Be a part of it all by entering your own story in the TOTA Short Film Fest at Devour!
