The Okanagan Film Festival International's plan to screen a controversial documentary about bestiality in Columbia has forced it to find a new home on the eve of its scheduled start.


Daybreak caught up with the manager of the Paramount Theatre in Kelowna, which has refused to host the festival.


After that, Daybreak host, Chris Walker, spoke with film festival organizer, Jeremy Heymen and the person responsible for suggesting the film, Leo Bartels, as well as the filmmaker, Daryl Stoneage.
