It was lights, camera, action on the North Shore recently as local celebs, actors, directors and more came out to the Whistler Film Festival’s “On Location” gala. Held at the North Shore Studios in North Vancouver, the evening included a glamorous red carpet arrival, food, cocktails and live entertainment by Cover Me Canada finalist and Whistler singer Ali Milner. But take out your calendars because you won’t want to miss the actual film festival which takes place in Whistler later this year from Nov 28 to Dec 2. Check out all the details and come party with the stars at www.whistlerfilmfestival.com
