The Canadian screening follows the Damien Chazelle-directed original musical nabbing the top audience award at the Toronto Film Festival. Garth Davis’ Lion, the runner-up for Toronto’s People’s Choice award, will also screen at Whistler.
In addition, director John Madden is set to attend the fest’s Canadian premiere of his Jessica Chastain-starrer Miss Sloane, which shot in Toronto. And Alan Thicke will be on hand to introduce his latest movie, It’s My Fault and I Don’t Care Anyway, in which he plays a narcissistic self-help guru.
Also booked for Whistler is Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women, starring Annette Bening, Greta Gerwig and Elle Fanning; Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, starring Brie Larson; Ned Crowley’s Middle Man; and Aaron Harvey’s Last Days of Summer, starring William Fichtner.
The Borsos competition of Canadian films includes Ken Finkleman’s political satire An American Dream: The Education of William Bowman, Chris Scheuerman’s Lost Solace, John Barnard’s Menorca and The Space Between, by Amy Jo Johnson.
The Canadian premiere of Sandra Lahnsteiner’s Shades of Winter: Between will close the festival.
