WHISTLER FILM FESTIVAL 2017 INTERVIEW: BUDAPEST NOIR DIRECTOR EVA GARDOS
by Jason Whyte
""Budapest, 1936. The Hungarian prime minister returns from Germany in a coffin, his dream of making Hungary into a fascist state snuffed out. For now. Crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon has other things on his mind. A cynic who thinks he has seen it all, a tip leads him to an unusual crime scene in a seedy part of the city; a beautiful, well-dressed young woman is dead, with only a Jewish prayer book in her purse. His curiosity is aroused. Didn't he just spot her in a sexy photo in the office of the Chief of Police? But an official stonewall blocks investigation of the mystery girl's murder, provoking Gordon to solve the puzzle of her demise. Enlisting the help of Krisztina, the beautiful photographer who once broke his heart and whom he doesn't fully trust, Gordon pursues his own investigation, following a murder suspect into the city's dark underbelly. Gordon enters a world of pornographers, brothels and Communist cells leading to the highest echelons of power. The more people try to scare him away, the deeper he digs in, not knowing who to trust, or what ulterior motives are working against him and the truth. Driven by one thing, finding the girl's killer, the increasingly endangered journalist is the only one who seems to care in a world gone mad, with Hitler looming on Hungary's horizon." Director Eva Gardos on BUDAPEST NOIR which screens at the 2017 edition of the Whistler Film Festival." (more)

by Jason Whyte

The story is about Sid whose coming out gets complicated when she learns that she is the dad of a fourteen year old teenager named Ralph. Enter Sid's Punjabi parents who over night, go from being devastated about Sid's transition to ecstatic about discovering that they have a grandson.

WHISTLER FILM FESTIVAL 2017 INTERVIEW - NEVER HERE DIRECTOR CAMILLE THOMAN
by Jason Whyte
""NEVER HERE is a genre-blend between a classic Hitchcock suspense thriller, whodunit, and a harrowing journey into the disintegration of identity. Who Am I? The Hollywood reporter calls it engrossing, visceral and a haunting Lynchian mystery. The LA Times says it's exceptional, remarkable, artful and atmospheric to the max. NEVER HERE is a fun thrill-ride, but at the same time it is a film that asks as many questions as it answers, posing questions to the viewer about the act of watching, voyeurism and the nature of identity." Director Camille Thoman on NEVER HERE which screens at the 2017 edition of the Whistler Film Festival." (more)

Cohen on A SWINGERS WEEKEND which screens in the 2017 edition of the Whistler Film Festival." (more)

by Jason Whyte
""For five years I talked on the phone with my Facebook friend Tatanniq otherwise known as former Inuit rock star Lucie Idlout. Over the years she told me so many things about Nunavut where she lived, that eventually I had to come see for myself. I arrived with no particular story to tell and no agenda other than curing my own ignorance about the lives of people in the North. At first I stumbled but eventually people started telling me their stories." Director Alan Zweig on THERE IS A HOUSE HERE which screens at the 2017 edition of the Whistler Film Festival." (more)
