As a fun alternative to the Oscar Awards, Virgin 95.3 FM throws an awards shindig of its own: the Fake Film Festival.

Last Saturday night saw a full house at Venue on Granville for the weekend’s ‘other’ most talked-about event on social media.

2013 Virgin 953 Fake Film Festival-2

2013 marks the third year that amateur film makers have submitted their 60-second version of a Hollywood film for a chance at $10,000 cash, not to mention a cool trophy handed out by Virgin Radio DJs Drew Savage and Natalie Hunter of Breakfast with Nat and Drew.

Tickets were by invite only or through the radio station’s contest.
