Snakebite Film Festival

Awakening Culture, Uniting Communities.


Snakebite is a creative film festival that will incorporate screenings of local shorts, Canadian nationally recognized and award winning films, as well as a short film competition with fabulous and yet undetermined prizes. 

Our mission to Awaken Culture and unite communities has already become pretty clear as we had a large group come to our first meeting, from all walks of life and ages, it was a good indication of how our film passion will fit into this community festival. So far we are well on our way with a booking at the landmark for screenings. Our next step is to define some principles around what would be the lens of topics and issues to fulfill our vision, as well as creating a selection committee. 

We want the strength of the Film portion of Arts Rising to appeal to many genres, and with more input from the public we hope we are able to accomplish it.

48 HOUR FILM CONTEST registration now open!


More News:

Happy Monday everyone! Snakebite has a few teams ready to go for the upcoming 48 hour competition, but we are always looking for more. Now is the time to sign up so we know how many packages to organize for all of the opening ceremony film guidelines.

As well, we are hoping to put together aspiring film makers with aspiring actors! If you or anyone you know might have a flair for impressions, looks really good in every picture they take, or just likes to pretend, please let them know to contact the Arts Council through or send us a private message here on Facebook and we will do the best we can to match up teams with a perfect cast.
