National Canadian Film Day
The Whistler Film Festival is set to celebrate National Canadian Film Day with a free event on April 21 and 22.

The Whistler Film Festival is celebrating National Canadian Film Day on April 21 with a virtual screening of James Vs His Future Self.

Presented in conjunction with Reel Canada, the event will also include a Q&A with writer and actor Jonas Chernick as well as director Jeremy Lalonde.

The science-fiction comedy follows a character named James, a scientist researching time travel, who is confronted by his older self who arrives from 17 years in the future and demands he stops his work. Originally, the film premiered at the festival in 2019.

“We love supporting this national initiative to celebrate Canadian film, and we’re thrilled to partner with Jonas Chernick and Jeremy Lalonde,” says Angela Heck, managing director of the Whistler film Festival Society, in a release. “As alumni of the festival, screening this film aligns with our mission to champion Canadian creators and amplify their voices. By using our online platform, which proved widely successful at the 2020 fest, we’re able to bring this story to households across the country.”

Catch the film free online across Canada through the festival’s online viewing platform from April 21 to April 22.
