WHISTLER FILM FEST AFTER DARK

first_img Twitter Advertisement The Whistler Film Festival always offers the chance to catch a few highly touted films before they hit the multiplex, with Mary Queen of Scots (starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie) and If Beale Street Could Talk (from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins) among this year’s big-ticket items.
