#FermentingAwesome Contest: Rules and Outline



We want you to create a #FermentingAwesome video or “indie ad” for Kinesis 2017! We invite you to feature one of our local partner breweries and tell a story. How you decide to spin it is up to you. You will have full creative control. You must however, in some way, tie in the brewery or it’s beer to your short film. 


Kinesis will be a four day celebration of Kootenay film, featuring screenings, networking opportunities, professional development sessions, and a day-long open space meeting. Kinesis’ daily screenings will be open to everyone, film lovers and filmmakers alike! Learn More
