The Kokanee movie that is coming out here to Fernie

The latest movie to be filmed in Fernie will be hitting the big screen next month.

The film, titled “The Movie Out Here” is a feature length promotional movie for Kokanee, and features plenty of recognizable Fernie buildings, including The Royal and Big Bang Bagels. Production took place from September 12 to 16, 2012. The crew also spent plenty of time filming on Second Avenue and at Fernie Alpine Resort.

While Fernie has previously been the backdrop to a couple of different films, the Kokanee movie is unique in that it showcases Fernie as a real place. “Canadian productions generally play as U.S. locations,” said Rico Meilnicki, Locations Manager. “It’s very rare we actually play a real Canadian city.”

Meilnicki explained as a B.C. company that originated in Fernie, it was important to Kokanee that they represented the City of Fernie as a genuine location.

The Movie Out Here is described as a romantic buddy comedy, and features classic Kokanee characters like the Kokanee Ranger, the Glacier Girls, and of course, the Sasquatch.
