Whistler Film Festival
November 11 - November 17
Whistler Film Festival consists of 5 days packed full of films and events taking place at various locations in Whistler. The festival showcases feature films, short films, and documentaries as well as art, music and signature series. With a focus on upcoming artists in the film industry, it enables them to showcase their first-time films and for audiences to discover new favorites. The standard is always high, and in the past, some of the movies from the festival line up have gone on to be nominated for and even to win an Oscar! In previous years, more than half of the films showcased at Whistler Film Festival are Canadian, and last year 46% of the feature films were directed by women. The festival offers prizes and awards for submissions, and the audience can also vote for their favorite movies. If you love watching films and celebrating cinema, this is the festival for you.
