The story of a blind date gone awry was written by Boisclair, who also directed and produced the film.

Stood Up has received more than 50 nominations and awards and has been selected at 95 film festivals internationally.

The film was an entry to the Kamloops edition of the Women In the Director’s Chair Short Works award.

With the recent death of her grandmother, who helped raise her, Boisclair set out to write a three-minute script that “just made me happy” and could serve as a send-off for someone she loved.

"So I wrote Stood Up. It’s a type of modern love story, where love always wins out,” she said.

Catch the film's premiere on YouTube at 6 p.m. Friday evening or press play on the video below after 6 p.m. on Friday.
