Two Penticton youth recently won the top prize in a provincial film contest. The cousins, Maddison Tebbutt, 16, and Ivy Allen, 12, wrote, edited and filmed the movie, Dollhouse, as part of the Kelowna Centre for Arts and Technology s 48-hour film challenge.
Filmmakers of all ages entered the contest, including many students currently studying filmmaking at the Kelowna Centre for Arts and Technology.
One of the things I love about teaching film and television is that the gifted students truly excel when faced with a challenge, and strive to create movies that they are proud to share with others,  said Pen-Hi teacher Russ Stasiuk.
The girls received their film award in front of a sold-out audience at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna.
One of the coolest things was seeing so many people watching the film,  says Tebbutt. Someone actually screamed, so that was great. 
Dollhouse is set in an abandoned house and at a nearby apple orchard. Something about the house s past is evil, and it has a chilling effect on all who dare to enter. Although essentially a horror picture, the film was praised for its cinematography of the orchard and montages inside the home.
People can interpret the meaning of the film in different ways,  says Allen. I m just glad we scared a few people.
