After five days of screenings, workshops, pitch sessions, panel discussions, special events, parties, and—of course—skiing and snowboarding, the 15th edition of the Whistler Film Festival wrapped up on December 6 with a screening of the appropriately winter-themed B.C. film Numb.
In addition to the awards presented at the awards ceremony on December 6, Todd Haynes' same-sex romance Carol, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, won the Pandora Audience Award. Runners-up included Robert Carlyle's directorial debut The Legend of Barney Thomson and the Quebec mid-life crisis dramedy Le Mirage.
