Whistler Film Festival, otherwise known as “Canada’s coolest film fest”, has just released the full lineup for this year’s festival.

Taking over Whistler from November 29 to December 3, this chill festival will round out the year on a mountain high.

87 films from over 15 countries will be shown at the Whistler Film Festival this year, featuring great Canadian content with a strong emphasis on female directed films.

This year’s lineup includes buzz-worthy award season contenders such as the festival’s opening film Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman and Lily James. The Oscar front-runner tells the story of Winston Churchill’s determination during the ‘darkest hour’ of WWII.

Also of note is the Whistler Film Festival’s closing gala: The Moment, a BC-shot documentary, follows a crew of mountain biking adventure seekers who changed the sport forever.

Boasting fresh films from around the world and more premieres than ever before, Whistler Film Festival is undoubtedly the coolest way to cap off your winter.
