Whistler Film Festival Society Announces Spring Fling - A Taste Of Whistler At Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa

Apres Extravaganza At Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa

February 12, 2013

WHISTLER, B.C. - A new event is set to launch the spring season in Whistler with a tasty après experience. The Whistler Film Festival Society presents Spring Fling - A Taste of Whistler on Saturday, March 30 at Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa.

Prepare to feast on fine wine, food, fun and frivolity at this après extravaganza in support of the Whistler Film Festival Society's Future in Focus Capital Campaign. Guests will sample from Diageo's extensive collection of international and domestic wines, and enjoy delicious appetizers from some of Whistler's best restaurants such as Cinnamon Bear Grille, complimented by live entertainment, a silent and live auction, and a fabulous grand prize raffle.

WFFS' vision is to be one of the top film festivals in the world and to establish Whistler as a pre-eminent destination that connects the art and business of film. Critical to the success of this plan is the development of a world-class state of the art screening facility. WFFS' plan to renovate Whistler's original movie house, the Rainbow Theatre, meets this critical need.

Once completed, the new Theatre will support its vision to build the Whistler Film Festival into a world-class destination event and enable the organization to expand its programming and profile year round, as well as create a new multi-functional space for programming and rental for the community and resort visitors.

Ticket and Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa Accommodation Packages are also available for $192* per person per night based on double occupancy for a three night stay and $209* per person per night based on double occupancy for a two night stay. Both packages include an event ticket.

Spring Fling is sponsored by Diageo, Labatt, Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa, Whistler Question, Mountain FM and RTown.
