The 12th annual Whistler Film Festival, Nov. 28 to Dec. 2, celebrates the next generation of cinematic talent with an impressive lineup of star-studded guests and honorees.

This year the spotlight shines on actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter film series, Kill Your Darlings, The F Word, Horns)  in an intimate evening conversation Nov. 30, that will speak to the exciting career of the respected young British stage and film actor.

We have watched him mature on screen in the eponymous role of Harry Potter, the most successful film series of all time, in which he starred in all eight films. Now he has a tremendous year ahead which includes three highly anticipated films and a return to London’s West End stage. The diverse films include Kill Your Darlings, which stars Radcliffe as a young Allen Ginsberg, dramatizing the previously untold story of murder that sparked the Beat Revolution; The F Word, a bright romantic comedy co-starring Zoe Kazan; and Horns, a thriller based on Joe Hill’s supernatural novel, about a man who, while undergoing personal turmoil, experiences a horrific transformation, currently filming in Vancouver.

Spotlight On: Daniel Radcliffe takes place at  Millennium Place. Tickets $50 and a limited pass holder access ticket is required.

Rashida Jones will be honored with the Whistler Film Festival’s Trailblazer Award for Acting & Scriptwriting, Nov. 29, followed by a screening of Celeste and Jesse Forever at the Whistler Conference Centre.Tickets: $20.

The Festival film lineup and Summit industry schedule are available online.

The Festival’s online box office is open for industry registration and festival passes.

Ticket packages and individual film and event tickets are also are available online until Dec. 2. The Festival Box Office is now open for phone sales (1-877-838-FILM) and opens for walk-in sales on Nov. 22. Accommodation packages are also available.
