JOIN THE CELEBRATION!
A true, Canadian film “first”, on December 5th, 2014 at the Whistler Film Festival, FirstWeekendClub.ca proudly presents our newest initiative,
“Canada Screens” & #FWClive. It’s the first Video On Demand (VOD) service to launch a new film immediately following a Canadian World Premiere!
Whistler Film Festival will host the World Premiere of AFTER FILM SCHOOL on
December 5 at 70pm PST at Millennium Place.
THEN Immediately following, at 8:30pm PST, the film will be made available on VOD for $9.95 for a limited time at nfb.ca, with additional content and exclusives from the festival by FWC, bringing the festival experience to YOU online!
FWC GOES LIVE!
FOLLOW the filmmakers, the festival and FWC live, online and at @1stWeekendClub for coverage from the events using hashtag, #FWClive. FirstWeekendClub.ca will be on the ground covering Whistler Film Festival, bringing exclusive content from Whistler to our Canadian Film-loving audiences across the country!
“Canada Screens is unlike any other VOD service. Our goal is to provide content, as well as connect filmmakers and talent with online audiences through moderated Q&As, panel discussions, exclusive behind the scenes footage and interviews,” says First Weekend Club’s
Executive Director Anita Adams. “Canada Screens engages viewers in a way that will keep them coming back for Candian Content.”
ABOUT “AFTER FILM SCHOOL” FILM:
AFTER FILM SCHOOL, a hilarious mockumentary directed by Joel Ashton McCarthy, is about the travails facing film school graduates as they try to find money to mount their first features. A rather talentless, would-be hack substitutes his own script for the work of a deceased roommate
who actually has some financing in place, and the result is a hilariously
tasteless film within a film, High School Murders-The Musical.

Summit Lodge Boutique Hotel is Whistler’s Hotbed For Creative Explorers!
With an eye for all “the little things”, Summit is perfectly tailored to the traveller who finds joy in life’s everyday moments.
