WFF 2019 Opens Next Week [Lineup]

By Marina Antunes [11.29.19]


The 2019 edition of "Canada's Coolest Film Festival" kicks off next week. From December 4 to 8, the Whistler Film Festival will welcome a wide selection of movies, artists and creators to the mountainside village for four days of screenings, presentations and parties.


Highlights at this year's festival include the world premiere of Kirk Caouette's action spectacle Promiseland, special presentations of Tom Harper's The Aeronauts and Martin Scorsese's The Irishman as well as the Western Canadian premiere of Lorcan Finnegan's Vavarium.


Always a draw for Canadian films, this year's festival also features a wide variety of home-grown talent including Nicole Dorsey's 1980's set thriller Black Conflux, Gaurav Seth's sci-fi thriller Entangled, Canada's Oscar hopeful Sophie Deraspe's Antigone, and perhaps most exciting is the Western Canadian Premiere of Bruce McDonald's Dreamland in which he re-teams with Pontypool star Stephen McHattie and writer Tony Burgess. This latest trip also co-stars Henry Rollins and Juliette Lewis.



Attendees will also have a chance to take in a variety of special presentations including an artist tribute to Joseph Pantoliano and artist spotlights on Simon Pegg and Chelsea Peretti, all of whom will be in attendance.
