Films being shot in South Okanagan

he Okanagan Film Commission announced Summerland will be one of the locations for two new television movies being shot in the Okanagan this summer.

Sepia Films started their month long production of A Sisters Nightmare this week shooting predominantly in West Kelowna and Summerland. The film features Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl, Scream 3) and Natasha Henstridge (The Secret Circle, CSI Miami) in the leading roles. Peyton List (Jessie, Diary of A Wimpy Kid franchise) and Mathew Settle (Gossip Girl, Band of Brothers) will star alongside.

“Our last experience shooting in the Okanagan was extremely positive. We got a fantastic look for the film and it was one of the network’s top performing films last year. We are delighted to be back,” said producer Kim Roberts.

In August, Sepia Films will return to the region to shoot A Daughters Nightmare, more details are to be released soon.

“We are doing things right when production companies are returning year after year with multiple productions,” said Jon Summerland, Okanagan Film Commisioner. “The production company will be hiring crew locally which is great for our local industry.”

Amazing Race Canada just wrapped the first episode of the new CTV series in Kelowna, which will air on July 15. In addition there are two high profile television commercials coming with Manulife in Kelowna and Infiniti cars shooting in Osoyoos.
