The Whistler Film Festival (WFF) has launched an emergency appeal for donations after experiencing "major challenges" with its box office system and suffering a shortfall.

The appeal was launched to online supporters on Wednesday, Dec. 21, three weeks after the start of the 2016 festival, which ran from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4.

It reads:

"We experienced major challenges with our box office system, which some of you also encountered. As a result, we did not meet our targets and have experienced a shortfall. So, we are reaching out to our film fans and filmmakers to ask you to help support WFF."

Supporters are asked to make a donation by Dec. 31 to the WFF Annual Fund in order to receive a charitable tax receipt, which can be issued for donations of $50 or more.

In order to donate, visit: www.canadahelps.org/dn/15643.
