Whistler’s Film Festival Opens November 28th

Whistler Film Festival

Opening day on Whistler Blackcomb is fast approaching, but soon after that, make sure you have your popcorn ready for the November 28th when the Whistler Film Festival opens for its 12th year. From November 28th to December 2nd, movie goers will have to play the ‘Amazing Race’ to see all 75 amazing films at this year’s Whistler Film Festival. Alright, maybe it will be hard to see all 75 films, but be sure to at least catch a few of the flicks at this year’s festival.
